Today, Sony is officially launching Hi-MD Walkman digital music players. Hi-MD Walkman players are compatible with the Sony Connect online music store and use Hi-MD removable media, providing music lovers with massive storage capacity to build an infinite library of their favorite songs. In the U.S. alone, Sony has sold more than two and a half million
Walkman-branded devices that are already compatible with the Connect store.
By the end of the year, that number will increase to over seven million. The MZ-NH1 (pictured) is the highend Hi-MD player, which can record onto Hi-MD 1GB blanks and plays original-MD discs as well.
