Sony’s OLED Walkman specs revealed, QVGA rears its ugly head

By Tim Stevens,


We’ve been itching to spend some quality time with Sony’s NWZ-X1000-series player since its granite-sided shell was first revealed just ahead of CES, and now that it’s inching closer to release (in the Old Country, at least) we finally have a full spec sheet to parse. On the audio side it’ll play MP3, WMA, and AAC at up to 320kbps, and for video there’s MPEG-4, H.264, and WMV support, sadly in most cases crippled at 320 x 240 despite that 3-inch OLED screen’s 432 x 240 native resolution. That’s nearly a quarter of those pixels gone to waste. Other goodies include FM tuning, 802.11g/b WiFi, internet browsing with YouTube support, and 33 hours of battery life when grooving to tunes, 9 hours when watching video, and surely much less when cruising the web. Still no confirmed domestic release date, but it can’t be long now.
