Sony Enters the Portable Video Player War with the NW-A800
We get a little teary-eyed when we reminisce to “back in the day”—when it was all about the Sony Walkman (and those orange earpuffs!) for portable music listening. Apparently Sony is also tired of its old-school status, as it has just introduced the NW-A800, it’s new MP3/video Walkman. The slim device sports a 2” color screen, and supports MPEG-4 video files. You can easily download video to the NW-A800, using it’s drag ‘n’ drop feature. And one of the player’s best features is its battery life: up to 30 hours for music and 8 hours for video…take that, iPod! Plus, if your own video and music collection isn’t enough, visit the Sony Connect download site to buy some more. The NW-A800 will be available in Europe in April, in sizes ranging from 2GB to 8GB, which frankly, we think is a little small. The price for the 8GB will be £199, approximately $400 USD. Hopefully the prices will be less when the NW-A800 arrives in the US.
