Sony UK Announce Two New PMPs Expected To Be Available By the End of the Month

Labels: , , ,

Sony UK has just announced that they are going to launch two new Walkman PMPs, the Sony E440 and the B140. Both of these PMPs have an FM radio, a voice recorder, and are able to record music from the radio. Similarities aside, let's set them apart.

First up is the Sony E440. This PMP has a 2-inch QVGA display, Clear Audio technology, and is kept tight in a 9.3mm thick chassis. This PMP is capable of playing 30 hours of music / 6 hours of video and recharges to 80-percent in just 45 minutes. This will be available in 4 /8 / 16GB capacities and is a direct competitor for the iPod Nano.

Next up is the Sony B140 PMP. It has: a slim USB key form-factor - similar to this. It also has a small monochrome display, five switchable equalizer modes, bass boost, music-synchronized LEDs, and Sony's ZAPPIN mode "which plays a few seconds of each track from within, not at the start of, each song." This PMP is capable of playing 18 hours of music and a 3 minute charge is good enough for 90 minutes of music. This will be available in 2 / 4GB capacities and seems like a direct competitor for the iPod Shuffle.

Both of these PMPs haven't been priced yet, but they should hit UK shelves by the end of this month.
