Sony Wraparound MP3 Player

By Richard Menta 3/31/09

For those who touted the minute size of the latest incarnation of the iPod shuffle, Sony has a new MP3 player that should interest you. The Sony W series Walkman was unveiled earlier this year at CES and now their interesting MP3 unit is shipping. The Series W is a wraparound portable that integrates player and earbuds into a single unit. Annoyed that the iPod Shuffle requires speacial earbuds? Not an issue here.

The Sony wraparound, formally known as the NWZ-W202 MP3 player, ships with 2GB of memory and plays music in the MP3, AAC and WMA (the last for those who are still invested in Microsoft's abandoned codec). The batteries offer 12 hours of playback, but Sony has provided a very convenient three-minute "quickcharge" feature that will offer 90 minutes of playback.The unit is available in pink and black and retails for $69.95.
