Sony to Release ATRAC-, Bloatware-free Walkman


What’s more surprising? That Sony is releasing a drag-and-drop Walkman, the B100, that doesn’t use a music loading app and won’t support ATRAC or that there’s a site dedicated to ATRAC news? I’m going with the latter.

The Walkman comes in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB versions and should be available next month, probably only in Japan. Do we care? Not specifically, but it’s quite strange to see stalwart Sony thrashing about like this for something that might open new markets.
