Sony Announces the Sony Walkman Bean
Walkman Bean is the new flash memory based MP3 player from Sony, combining a different ergonomic design with ease of use.

"Bean" gets its name from its unique shape. It features a direct pop-up USB jack, which can be inserted in to a PC to transfer music directly to the device.

The Walkman Bean features a bright 1-line OLED display, up to 50-hour playback from a Lithium-ion Rechargeable Battery and a super high-speed charge facility, which provides the user with 3 hours play from just a 3-minute charge.

The new mp3 player is available in Tropical Ice (Blue), Cotton Candy (Pink), Licorice (Black) and Coconut (White). All colours take their inspiration from various flavours of jellybean, owing to the shape of the device.

Users will find the Walkman Bean in both 512MB and 1 GB capacity (NW-E205 and NW-E207), plus a 512 MB model with a built in FM tuner (NW-E305).

Walkman Bean features ATRAC3plus and MP3 Playback and ships with SonicStage 3.2 file management software. As well as managing your music library, SonicStage provides access to the CONNECT catalogue of more than 700,000 tracks and albums available for download.
