Sony Rolly in Black
Sony today chose to spark up its Rolly music player line with the addition of new color options. The dancing player itself now comes in black in addition to the original white and now has the option of different colored arms: blue, red, and silver replacements can attach to any of the existing designs to spruce up the original design. The 1GB Rolly will continue to sell at about $400 in Japan when the black version arrives on April 19th, while a set of arms costs $15. Sony has already said it would bring the Rolly to the US in the spring, but hasn't said whether it will add new colors.
Moving past hardware, Sony also says it has improved software with an improved ability to search for motion routines and expects to ship a free set of music and motion packs starting from April 17th and is theming them around playback in the park. Sony hasn't announced any initial plans for American motion packs but is expected to offer some for its US launch. [via Impress]
