Sony has announced two new Walkman players, the W250 and B150 Series. The W250 series takes over from the previous similarly-styled player and adds water resisting capabilities. The W252 (2GB) and W253 (4GB) enables users to exercise without worrying about water and sweat getting into the player. Additionally, the wire-free W250 Walkman features ZAPPIN technology that plays a part from the song to enable easy searching, up to 11 hours playback, Quick Charge allowing users to give up to 90 mins of playback on a 3 min recharge and Content Transfer software to copy your songs from your iTunes library. The NWZ-W250 series will arrive in late May in black, silver, pink and green.
The B150 on the other hand, will give users Walkman’s superior sound quality at an affordable price. The new B Series Walkman now adds a button to provide an instant bass boost. Other than that, the player is more or less the same as previous B Series Walkman with a small 3 line LCD, ZAPPIN song search, FM Radio, voice and FM recorder, Quick charge and 18 hours of music playback.
It will be available in early June in black, blue, pink and red.
