Pictured here is an NW-A3000 from Sony which reportedly is similar to the look of the new player but slightly flatter and more rectangular. The new Walkman is a video player coming in sizes of 2, 4 and 8GB with 8 to 10 hours of video playback. A larger screen than the iPod nano with horizontal viewing is expected with the player being on 6.5mm thick in total.
The new rumored player from Sony is said to come in colors of violet, black, blue and pink and will be officially announced in early March with pricing slightly higher than the nano. The fact that there are no photos at all makes us a little skeptical with this one; even a photoshop’d version would have been nice. If real, it will be interesting to see if this is a flash-based device, and given the thickness we’re guessing it is.
More information as it becomes available.
