I am really digging the design. It reminds me of the classic Clie TH55 PDA. It has both touchscreen and dedicated buttons (volume, play, skip, back). Finally, a touchscreen DAP that makes sense and has usable blind controls. It also has a nice 3" OLED screen. Other features includes WiFi, acitve noise cancellation (headphone independent), Web browser, You Tube and a proper GUI. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB flavours. I don't really like the headphone jack's placement, but at least it makes sense in regards to the control layout.
If my relatively new S639 is sentient, it ought to be feeling worried.Updated:
There will be two flavours to the X1000-series, the NWZ-X1050 (16GB) and X1060 (32GB). The X1060B is now available for pre-order at Amazon UK and Amazon.com
