Rumor: Sony to debut an iPod Touch-like Walkman with OLED screen at CES


Take an iPod Touch, swap out the LCD screen with an OLED screen, and you might just have Sony’s next Walkman. Sony Insider is reporting that we’ll apparently see a device with the following specs at CES this year:

  • Capacities of 16GB and 32GB
  • Three-inch WQVGA (480×320) OLED touchscreen
  • Built-in Wi-Fi connection
  • Click an artist’s name while a song is playing to view their videos on YouTube
  • Apparent "full access" to YouTube website (although the post then says it’ll be similar to YouTube on the iPhone/iPod Touch)
  • Support for audio podcasts and Crackle video feeds with automatic downloading
  • Music purchases via Amazon’s music store
  • File support for MP3, WMA, AAC, PCM, AVC, MPEG-4, and WMV
  • FM radio
  • Web browser (no word on Flash support)
  • Built-in digital noise canceling

No word on pricing or anything since it’s still just a rumor. Looks solid so far, though.
