Sony’s Walkman is not dead! Behold the MWZ-B160 Series!

Sony Europe has introduced yesterday four new Walkman with the MWZ-B160 Series including the 4GB MWZ-B163 and MWZ-B163F as well as the 2GB MWZ-B162 and MWZ-B162F.
Each models comes with a “USB Stick” design and available in five different colors, only support MP3 files and non-DRM WMA ones and offers a “generous” 18h of battery like or 90 minutes of continuous play when charged for only 3 minutes.
Other functions include direct Drag and Drop, Sony’s ZAPPIN features and a one-touch Boost button for rich and deep bass.

Whether you’re jogging, travelling, or just hanging out with friends – the latest Walkman® B Series of MP3 players from Sony delivers rich sound plus street-smart looks.

Weighing just 28g and less than 10cm long, Walkman® B Series boasts an eye-grabbing two-tone finish in a vivid choice of contrasting colour-ways.

Despite its compact size, easy-to-use Walkman® B Series delivers big, bold, sound by Sony that stands out from the crowd. Whatever your listening tastes, you’ll experience rich Walkman® audio quality with full, deep bass. Push the Bass button for even more low-end power and the colour matching power illuminator pulses in time with the music.

A generous 18 hour* battery life lets you keep listening for longer. Or if you’re in a hurry, plug in your Walkman® for just 3 minutes and get charged up for 90 minutes playback time.

New this year, a detachable clip attaches Walkman® to a belt, bag strap or outside the pocket of your shirt or jeans. It’s a great way to show off your MP3 player’s great looks while you’re out and about.

Loading up Walkman® with your digital music collection is easy. Just connect the player’s built-in USB connector to your PC – then drag and drop files or transfer them via Windows Media® Player 11/12.

ZAPPIN™ song search technology lets you browse quickly through all your music. Just touch the ZAPPIN™ button to preview a short snatch of each track without fiddly searches through menus or playlists.

The new Walkman® NWZ-B160 range of ultra-portable MP3 players is available from June 2011.

    Daimaou, honestly, stop acting like a child. Walkman still sells decently well, and there are periods in Japan where it outsells the iPod. Apple only has 60% of the MP3 market.

      @Koarin, I don’t understand the perception by some that Walkman is
      dead. Sony has left some of their best products out of North America
      and Europe because of the “hive” perception. I for one would perfer a
      more balanced perception of electronics from around the world. I am more willing to look at the products for that other “40%”.

      @Koarin:disqus Sales of DAP are not what the used to be and especially in Japan where the iPod was strong. But remember one thing, iPod sales has been replaced mostly by iPhone sales and many users now are switching their basic DAP needs over to smartphones…

    Those are some pretty sexy looking players, but a 8 or 16gb model would be nice. I would buy one if they offered that much space. Sony is known for its sound quality. The iPods don’t sounds anywhere near as nice as the Sonys.
