Just Launched - New Sony Walkman Players
Sony just launched new Walkman portable media players: the S, E and B Series. The most interesting one is the high-end S-Series. It comes with a new music management software that's built to be friendly with music collection ripped from CDs (non-DRM files). It also supports windows media video with DRM (WMV) and can play video at 30fps on the 2" QVGA (320x240) LCD display. We would have preferred DivX or H.264, but both are not mentioned anywhere in the specifications. For travelers, the S-Series can act as a noise-cancelling device. If it is anything like previous models, I can tell you that it does reduce noise, but I don't expect it to be as good as dedicated noise-cancelling headphones - but it's not a bad compromise. If on the contrary, you are in a quiet environment, you can use the internal speakers.
