Sony Walkman B Series, Η νέα σειρά των MP3 players από τη Sony

Η Sony στρέφεται ξανά στα «απλά» και ανακοινώνει τη νέα σειρά των MP3 players της, η οποία ονομάζεται Walkman B Series. Η συγκεκριμένη περιλαμβάνει τα MP3s NWZ-B163/B163F (4 GB) και NWZ-B162/B162F (2 GB) σε τέσσερα πολύ ωραία χρώματα (μαύρο, ροζ, πράσινο, μπλε, κόκκινο), τα οποία αναπαραγάγουν αρχεία μορφής MP3 και WMA (όχι DRM), έχουν αυτονομία 18 ώρες και οθόνη LCD 3 γραμμών.

Και τα δύο MP3 players θα κυκλοφορήσουν τον Ιούνιο -σε άγνωστες τιμές ακόμα- και θα είναι ιδανικά για όσους αθλούνται χάρης στο μέγεθός τους.

Whether you’re jogging, travelling, or just hanging out with friends – the latest Walkman® B Series of MP3 players from Sony delivers rich sound plus street-smart looks.

Weighing just 28g and less than 10cm long, Walkman® B Series boasts an eye-grabbing two-tone finish in a vivid choice of contrasting colour-ways.

Despite its compact size, easy-to-use Walkman® B Series delivers big, bold, sound by Sony that stands out from the crowd. Whatever your listening tastes, you’ll experience rich Walkman® audio quality with full, deep bass. Push the Bass button for even more low-end power and the colour matching power illuminator pulses in time with the music.

A generous 18 hour* battery life lets you keep listening for longer. Or if you’re in a hurry, plug in your Walkman® for just 3 minutes and get charged up for 90 minutes playback time.

New this year, a detachable clip attaches Walkman® to a belt, bag strap or outside the pocket of your shirt or jeans. It’s a great way to show off your MP3 player’s great looks while you’re out and about.

Loading up Walkman® with your digital music collection is easy. Just connect the player’s built-in USB connector to your PC – then drag and drop files or transfer them via Windows Media® Player 11/12.

ZAPPIN™ song search technology lets you browse quickly through all your music. Just touch the ZAPPIN™ button to preview a short snatch of each track without fiddly searches through menus or playlists.

The new Walkman® NWZ-B160 range of ultra-portable MP3 players is available from June 2011.
