The Sony NW-E000 is a compact, stylish flash MP3 player that those who can tolerate SonicStage should consider, but beware the unintuitive interface.
Sony's half-baked Walkman Bean tries hard to be hip, but bad design elements and hissy audio make it one square audio player.
If you want a beautiful-looking device with killer battery life, consider the Sony NW-E400 series.
Pricing not available
Budget-conscious music fans who want more than the Apple iPod Shuffle has to offer will be pleased with Sony's NW-E100 flash players.
