Sony Zappin Walkman

Sony has recently taken the wraps off its latest portable music player, the Walkman NWZ-B142F (JE) Zappin, which is effectively an update to the company's B-series players. Chief among the changes is a Zap button that is also found on other Walkman players, such as the W series, that lets users find tracks by listening to five-second samples. The Zappin has an integrated USB interface and contains 2GB of memory that is filled simply by users dragging and dropping MP3 and WMA audio files into it, without having to install any special syncing software. An FM tuner is built in, as is a voice and FM radio recorder.

A three-line LCD display shows status, track and artist information. The player will be available in black, red, orange or pink. The device's battery is said to provide up to 18 hours of life. A three-minute quick charge will provide 90 minutes of playback. Compatibility is limited to Windows XP and Vista operating systems. Color-matching earphones are included with each Walkman Zappin.

Due out in Japan on July 10th, the Zappin players will cost the equivalent of $49. [via Impress]
