Netbooks the new portable media players?
Hello Donald and Happy B-day Jasmine, I really enjoyed the today's podcast(watched it on my new Walkman). I have the 32gb version and love it. I don't know if it is worth mentioning in your review but, the U.S. unit does come with a SonyMusicPass card good for 100 free high quality mp3 downloads. Also, I used the included audio input cable with a portable dvd player on a flight over the weekend and the noise cancel tech worked flawlessly. I assume this would work with anything with a headphone jack and the player has different NC settings for plane, train or office. I have yet to see any ads within the Slacker app. although the 6 skip limit is there. This really isn't an issue because you can simply change stations and not be penalized. Thanks and have a nice weekend. --Miguel
I listened to your latest MP3 insider podcast today which featured the new Sony X- Series Walkman.
I just have one question. Does the new Sony X-series have the best sound quality out there, or is the Creative Zen Zi Fi sound quality better? I am seriously considering the new Sony X-Series, and I just want to make sure it's the best at sound quality before I spend the money. --Carmen
