Sony NW-HD1 / HMP-A1 / VGF-AP1

Sony have just let loose details of this new hard disk based player. It comes with a 20GB disk and enough memory you should never see any skipping whilst playing music.

It is quite small too, clocking in at 8.9 x 6.2 x 1.4cm and looks quite smart. Just another contender for the ever popular iPod range. There are also a host of other players which you can choose from but the iPod still has the majority market share.

I'm still to get a disk based MP3 player, but I'll get round to it soon, as well as that nice new laptop and PDA. Maybe I should have a word with Santa?

There is also the Sony Vaio VGF-AP1 MP3 player, which was recently launched & the new video player HMP-A1 - They all look nice and all have enough space, but will they prove to be popular? Obviously the cost is an important component of the equation.

The other thing to remember is that the MP3 players will only play music encoded with the Sony ATRAC 3 format. I'm sure converters will be available and it will not be much of an issue, but this may put a number of people off buying these products.
