The new S series Walkman models will feature not only voice recording, but the option to record music from a built in FM tuner. With a storage size of 16GB on the high end and 8GB on the low end, this surprisingly economical line of MP3 players may be a strong contender this holiday season.
Sony also hopes to make listening to music a more social experience by introducing a pair of built in speakers to the S series. Around 17 hours of music can be played through the speakers on a single charge of the battery, though the question of audio quality is certainly a concern. Hitting stores in September, the S series can be had for around $110 for the 8GB model and $130 for the 16GB in colors of red, black and pink.
