You can "ooh" and "ahh" all you want about OLED touchscreens, but until they hit the street, they're just talk. Sony is finally getting ready to release their OLED-equipped Walkmans — street date April 25.
The 3-inch OLED touchscreen has 240 x 432 resolution. The Walkmans will have an audio player, One-Seg TV tuner, and FM tuner for basic use, but the fun really starts when you use the built-in Wi-Fi web browser, including a YouTube interface. The players support MP3 and AAC files, so your unprotected iTunes library might have a new home.
The NW-X1050 is the 16GB, $400 model, and the NW-X1060 is the $500 32GB version; both available in black or red. Unfortunately, Sony's mum on a US and European release date. Physically, it's a bit smaller than the iPhone or iPod touch — the Sonys measure 3.8 x 2.0 x 0.4 inches. Priced about $100 more than comparable iPod touch models, it will be interesting to see if the Sony Walkman can make a comeback.
UPDATE: These products will be available in the U.S. by mid-June. Available only in black, the 16GB NWZ-X1051 will sell for $299, and the 32GB NWZ-X1061 will retail for $399. Worth it?
