As announced earlier last week:

Sony is keeping you entertained for longer with its latest Walkman® NWZ-B180F, boasting a long playback time of 20 hours. The new Walkman® from Sony sports a new sleek and stylish design, featuring a seamless aluminum body specially fabricated for a rich texture and lustre (or simply sleek, glossy, vivid).

Available in five distinct colours as shown above(Gold / Red / Blue / Pink / Black), the NWZ-B180F digital music player has a built-in USB, making content transfer from the PC a cable-free process, simply by dragging and dropping the tracks or files into the Walkman® folder.

With 4GB worth of memory space, users will be spoilt for choice while on the move with approximately 890 songs to shuffle through. Music enthusiasts can further enhance their audio experience with the BASS Boost feature, reproducing powerful bass to blow one away with rich, bellowing sound.

The NWZ-B180F comes with 30 preset FM radio channels, within the range of 87.5 to 108.0 MHz, if you prefer listening to the live music and conversations by Radio DJs.

Besides delivering up to 20 hours of music playback, the built-in Lithium-Ion battery of the Walkman® NWZ-B180F ensures you have enough juice for a 90-minute journey with a quick 3-minute charge. A full charge will take a mere 70 minutes and with a life cycle of approximately 500 recharges, the NWZ-B180F is guaranteed to see you through your school years, long bus or train journeys.

The ultra-portable Walkman® NWZ-B180F is now available at Sony Singapore authorised dealers, at SGD 79.00.

Affordable and compact, good for those who’d prefer a separate gadget for their listening needs and for accessorizing 😀

Well though not likely to get a new pair of mp3 earphones / gadget soon (still have my NWZ-273 but can’t find charging cable…), the gold and pink does look eye-catching and ‘pwetty’ (deliberately mispelt) 😛
