Sony S Series E Series Walkman

has finally revealed the S Series Walkman, which supports JPGs, MP3/WMA/AAC audio, and H.264/MP4/WMV video at 30fps.  It also has an FM tuner with time-shifting, stereo speakers, a 2.4-inch screen, and a Lithium-Ion battery that’ll provide you with 42 hours of audio, or 6.4 hours of video playback. 

That’s not all, though. Sony is also introducing the E Series Walkman, which is similar to the S Series, but forgoes the speakers, and has a 2-inch QVGA screen.  It also doesn’t support H.264 video. 

The S and E Series come in many colors, at varying prices. The S-Series is $110 for the 8GB, and the $130 for the 16GB.  The E-Series is $80 for the 8GB, and the 16GB version is $100.
