Sony E01 Walkman in Japan

After their European preview, Sony today formally introduced its E01 series MP3 players in its home country. The player borrows its design influence from players such as the original iPod shuffle with a USB port for direct file transfers from PCs or USB-equipped home stereos, but uses its available space for a hidden OLED that provides a visual interface as well as full-color album art.

In this official debut, the company is launching 1GB ($92), 2GB ($117), and 4GB ($168) versions with most having the option of five colors ranging from black to gold. They ship to Japan on April 21st but are likely to appear in the US later this year. A photo showing the player with its armband and clip add-ons follows the break.
