Sony S706 Music Player

Sony's Network Walkman music player line is divided sharply into two main categories: inexpensive flash players with low storage and mid-range models considerably larger hard drives. A model will soon appear that bridges the gap and will signal Sony's first direct challenge to the iPod nano and Sansa e200. British online store Play inadvertently posted and later removed a listing for an upcoming new Sony player dubbed the NW-S706. The device, pictured, would resemble a hybrid between the design of the company's E00 series and the controls of the S2 Sports. As listed, it would also include features not normally seen in players its size, such as 4GB of flash storage and a color display capable of album art. An audio input jack, FM tuning, and 50 hours of battery life would also give the S706 a lead over other players in its class. The entry for the unreleased player had a price of 180, which is high compared to the 129 of Apple's 4GB iPod but reflects the additional features.
