In a move that will delight and inspire anti-social oiks everywhere, Sony has announced its first Walkman with built-in stereo speakers. The Walkman S540 video MP3 player includes a 61mm (2.4-inch) screen and will no doubt be blaring out its wares on the back of a bus near you soon.
The speakers benefit from something called 'Digital Linear Phase Speaker System with Virtual Bass and Linear Phase Correction', which is a load of old PR bobbins if ever we heard it. As well as MP3 and video playback, the S540 includes a voice recorder and FM radio with record function.
Sony reckons you'll get up to ten hours of annoying people from the speakers, or up to 30 hours from the headphones, and up to six hours of video.
The S540 comes in black, pink, violet and red. Click through our gallery for more pictures, and meet some of the other new Walkman products announced today.
