Sony rolls out video-centric Walkman players

Sony PMX Players

Sony has just grown its Walkman line to include two new video players. Unlike the A800 Video Walkman, which adds video as a bonus, the 2.4-inch U50 (pictured) and 4.3-inch M70 each focus on video with H.264 and MPEG-4 playback on a larger screen. Audio includes AAC, MP3, and unprotected WMA. Both systems also share an FM tuner for when the onboard flash memory runs out and can record audio directly instead of through its microphone.

The M70 is the company's flagship, complementing its larger widescreen LCD with 2GB to 8GB of storage, TV-out, and direct video encoding in either red or black models with hidden stereo speakers. The more pocketable U50 holds a smaller 512MB to 4GB of flash, but gains stronger stereo speakers that help stabilize the system when sitting on a desk using a built-in stand. Sony offers the more mainstream device in black, pink, or white.

Costs and official ship dates for the two players are currently absent, though they have seen their first release in China. Releases in territories are so far unlikely. [via I4U]
