The Sony Walkman NWZ-A865 MP3 player boasts a large, responsive touchscreen and some cool features. If it's anything like other Walkman models, it should be easy to use, but it lacks the apps and extra goodies than you'll find on an iPod touch.
Its older, larger, more expensive A-series brethren offers wireless audio and a whopping screen, but for ease-of-use, sound quality and sheer enjoyment to use, the S639F is a terrific choice. BBC iPlayer support is an awesome bonus for UK users
Sony won us over with its latest MP3 entry, the 6GB NW-A1000 Walkman, and with the exact same design and features set, the 20GB NW-A3000S Walkman looks set to do the same.
Sony's two new high-resolution Walkman models, the new compact H.ear NW-A25HN and high-end NW-ZX100HN, are announced at IFA.
The second-generation Sony E-Series Walkman remains an excellent value thanks to its ultralow pricing, pocketable design, handy features, and great sound quality.
