Sony has announced the launch of its first Hard Disk Network Walkman in Asia Pacific. The NW-HD3 comes with a 20GB hard drive, which can store up to 13,000 four-minute songs or 900 CDs worth of music, and features 30 hours of battery life.
“For the first time in Asia, consumers will be able to see for themselves the style and quality of Sony’s Hard Disk Network Walkman,” said Mr. Yoshiaki Kadokura, General Manager, Personal Audio Product Marketing, Sony Electronics Asia Pacific Pte.Ltd. “Its contemporary style, technological excellence and outstanding battery life makes the NW-HD3 an ideal device for consumers to bring their music with them anywhere they go.”
The NW-HD3 (90 x 62.1 x 14.8mm) weighs a 130g only even with its internal rechargeable battery included. The G-Sensor technology enables the hard disk to resist impact from drops. The same technology is also used to enable skip-free playback.
The Walkman is available in five colours (silver, blue, pink, red and black), and offers direct playback for ATRAC3plus and MP3 files, giving users multiple playback choices for greater convenience.
The new Network Walkman connects to a compatible computer via a USB 2.0 digital interface. It comes bundled with SonicStage software for importing, managing and transfer of music collections. It should be available from 1 March 2005.
