Looks very Archos 43. Hell, I expect Archos to update that sucker with a tegra-2 as well, and sell it for $100 under Sony's price.

Very interested in this one though. Will need some other color besides red.

Battery life seems not stellar...(maybe on par with Plenue D3 in same conditions)
Unfortunately, no proper 1080p support and no neon support due to Tegra2, too bad for a multimedia performer...
The device itself looks good... I am worrying about pricing. Would be more expensive than an iPod touch at same memory capacity (I guess...$100 more)

Cool Is this the comeback of Sony Walkman?

good thing about this player, if we can ever get one (due to pricing, or availability) is that as it will have Market access i wonder is the user would be able to install PowerAmp or PlayerPro, that way you could be able to play Flacs and other formats not supported by the own device player but supported by Android OS. Unless it is blocked or something which would be stupid. I think like many here that once i found out the price on this thing i will run scared and get back to my Android phone or Nokia E7.

I used to have a red S Series Walkman and i loved the design but hated the limited formats it can play so i got tired of it and sold it.

Old thread, I know. Has anyone seen one of these for sale yet?

A 64gb model at a premium price may be what we think we want, but in use I'm needing less and less on-board memory as cloud services improve and access to local shared content is easy. I'd love to have a 16gb version of this player.

You know I've been thinking I really don't need 64GB no reason in even thinking about it but what is possible is multiple cards.
