"Sony Walkman 4GB"

I have always been a big fan of USB Mp3 Players, although i often felt they were too basic, however, since purchasing the Sony Walkman 4GB i am changing my viewpoint.

The player looks sleek even before you turn it on and once you do the small display screen will surprise you with the graphics. The player has a ZAPPIN feature that plays you snippets of tracks and then you can press the ZAPPIN button to listen to that track.

You can tell alot of thought has gone into to making this player very special, you do have to charge it by USB but the battery life is very impressive!!. i have been on a six hour train journey recently with this player and even at full volume it barely dented the battery life.

i am already thinking of getting myself the 16gb player although different in style the 4GB player has given me confidence in Sony Players and judging by my experience i cant wait to see what else Sony have up their sleeve.
