New Sony Walkman doesn't look like a Walkman

It seems that Sony adopted a few ideas from other music devices when creating the W-series Walkman.  The "all-in-one" concept likely came from those big, bulky FM radio headsets, and the "no display" idea probably came from the iPod Shuffle.

On the battery side of things, the W-series Walkman is killer.  It takes three minutes to charge the device for an hour and a half of use, and if you're looking to use it all twelve hours, a mere half hour charge will do the job.

The W-series Walkman from Sony comes with 2 GB of storage and will run you $70.  We'll clue you in on a release date when we learn more.
