“Hey guys and girls, looks like Japan and Europe get to update their Walkman X firmware which is said to improve online browsing (is anyone surfing the net on your X?):
This firmware update improves the following performance:
Let’s hope we get the same treatment in the US soon, as I understand it is a holiday season and Sony software engineers just need to tweak the installer to work on the US models. When I tried using the firmware upgrade from a European website, it does not recognize my Walkman model (NWZ-X1051/1061) as it is intended for NWZ-X1050/1060 models (even though the software agreement lists all the US legal language and the installer is for X1000 series).
Anyways, the good news is Content Transfer software is at version 1.3 now and you can get it here and install it without any problems on your English speaking VAIOs, Lenovos, Dells and whatever else you are using.
Content Transfer software is an easy way to get audio, video and photos, as well as podcasts on your Walkman.”

“It appears that the elusive Sony NWZ-S740 series Walkman has been on sale in various Asia Pacific markets, including Hong Kong. Availability varies, and judging by past releases, the most advanced S-Series Walkman will slowly trickle out to other countries in that region eventually. It doesn’t seem to have the lyric service like the Japanese model, but does retain all of the other incredible features such as noise cancelling technology, FM, TV Out (at SD), 42 hour battery life for audio, 10 hours for video, and more. Reception to the product announcement was very strong back on September 16th, but also was confusing to consumers because of a limited Japanese debut. With the product now available in in more countries, can we assume it won’t be too much longer before it comes to the USA and Europe?
The S740 Series also have Clear bass, Clear Stereo, and DSEE to color your sound. I like several of these features and usually enable them. Colors available to Asia Pacific include just the black model – which is a far cry from the gold, green, violet models available in Japan. Not sure if any of the other colors will be available, which is sad because the green is pretty neat.
On a side note, will we ever see the latest A Series Walkman outside of Japan? I have heard some rumblings that it may be so. Stay tuned.”

The choice was easy, says jury leader Einar Eriksen, fagredaktør for Amobil.no. Han har kåret markedets beste mobiltelefoner sammen med redaksjonens faste testjournalister. He has voted the best mobile phones with editors fasting test journalists.
See the selection on the web-TV at the bottom of the case
Amobil.no is Norway’s largest mobile web site with 75 000 weekly readers (unique visitors in week 40, cf TNS Gallup), more than twice as large as its nearest competitor. En stor nasjonal pris er ifølge Eriksen en naturlig følge av flere år med grundig, kritisk og uavhengig forbrukerjournalistikk og markedsledende tester, som nyter stor respekt og anerkjennelse både hos lesere og leverandører. A major national award, according to Eriksen is a natural result of several years of thorough, critical and independent journalism and consumer market-leading test, which enjoys great respect and recognition both among readers and suppliers.
- Prisen er årlig. – Prize is annually. Det er vår hensikt å etablere prisen som Norges toneangivende kåring av mobiltelefoner, sier Håvard Solheim, forretningsansvarlig for nettmagasiner i Edda Digital. It is our intention to establish the price of Norway’s leading competition to find the mobile phones, “says Håvard Solheim, business responsible for online magazines in the Edda Digital.
This year’s mobile phone
It is Sony Ericsson W995 impressive running away with the most coveted award in 2009.
– The jury spent a good deal of time to find a winner, but as we took into account price and ease of use was the choice easy, “said Einar Eriksen on behalf of the jury.
It says the jury on the Sony Ericsson W995:
Sony Ericsson W995 has a graceful exterior, while impressive in other areas. It is a good mobile phone with tenacious battery, good screen and good keys, yet is packed with technology. W995 is a music player out of the box, has a superior camera and has a wealth of new features. This makes it well worth the price tag of 4,000 pounds for all who want to use your mobile phone for more than just make calls. At the same time it is very easy to use, with its clear and innovative menus and traditional buttons instead of the pressure monitor. (mais…)
Sony Japan has been offering the CMT-V3 Walkman stereo system for several months now under our radar. I felt this was worth looking at again though, and how its a great companion for the X-Series, both of the latest S-Series, and Japan only (at this time) A Series Walkman. The CMT-V3 is your general WM-Port equipped dock – useful for charging, rich alarm clock functionality, and so forth. The CMT-V3 also has a build-in CD player that has one touch record CD to Walkman and FM/AM Radio. Of course, a remote is included for added convenience. It’s available in black and white and costs about Y20,756 on Amazon Japan.
I haven’t seen this product outside of Japan. Have you? I haven’t seen anything to indicate this could be a preview of a future product for other territories.

Sony Ericsson MH907
by Richard Lai
What we have here today isn’t just another pair of ordinary headphones: Sony Ericsson‘s MH907s are button-free, minimalistic headphones that activate upon the magical touch of your skin.
Well, your ears to be precise. You must bear in mind that the MH907s are exclusive to Fast port-equipped Sony Ericsson phones thus excluding the forthcoming XPERIA X10 — so chances are you’re already not interested.
That said, we shall see if Sony Ericsson is really going to change things forever with these gleaming buds featuring SE’s SensMe Control technology, or by just stopping everyone from using their 3.5mm headphone jacks. Read on to find out how these €39 ($57) headphones fared.
