Rock & Roll Candy: Sony’s Walkman Bean MP3 Player

Remember the first Walkman? Sony’s engineers couldn’t fit the speakers onto the cassette player so they created earphones — and the world of personal, portable music was born. Now, to compete with Apple’s iPod Nano, Sony offers the Walkman Bean MP3 Player. A 3 minute quick charge plays for 3 hours, but it can play up to 50 hours when fully juiced.

The Bean comes in 4 flavors — Coconut White, Tropical Ice, Cotton Candy Pink and Licorice Black and can store almost 700 songs. Best of all, its built-in USB jack lets you download over 1,000,000 songs from Sony Connect.

• 1GB Built-In Memory / Stores 695 Songs
• Built in FM Tuner
• Built-In USB Connector
• 1-Line EL (Organic Electroluminescence) Display
• Super Quick Battery Charge (3 min charge = 3 hrs playback)
• Up to 50 Hours of Playback Life with Rechargeable Embedded Battery
