Sony unveiled its upcoming line of iPod Touch competitors earlier this year and much to the surprise of, well everyone, the X1000 series looks impressive. Very impressive in fact. If you can work your way past the marble finish, the X1000 Walkman has a lot going for it and now that the Sony Style Hong Kong site has pushed out the full detailed specs, we’re kind of excited to get our hands on a few of them. Here are the highlights:

  • 3-inch (432 x 240 pixels) OLED touchscreen display
  • 32GB storage
  • NetFront web browser, YouTube support
  • MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV audio / AVC, H.264, MPEG4, WMV video
  • Integrated noise cancellation
  • FM tuner
  • 802.11g/b WiFi
  • 33 hours of music playback, 9 hours of video playback

The one thing it doesn’t have of course, is the App Store. The hype and development community surrounding the iPod Touch will always give it a leg up on competitive offerings. If you’re looking to save some cash (hopefully) and forego the added functionality afforded by apps in exchange for some insane battery life however, the new Walkman might be just what the doctor ordered.
