Summary: Since Sony dumped its horrific SonicStage software and opened its door wider to the world, its player productions were nothing less than a super hit. Sony NWZ-A829 is a model of the Sony NWZ-A820 series , which is the successor of the NWZ-A810 series that was enjoyed in the year 2007. The NWZ-A820 series is better than the A810 in a lot of ways which includes a bigger display, built-in Bluetooth, increase in the style and availability in capacities of 8GB and 16GB.
Summary: Sony’s A Series Walkmans have worked hard to make themselves attractive alternatives to the iPod Nano . They’ve dumped SonicStage for Windows Media Player, added video playing and, with the A826, trumped their Cupertino foe with built-in Bluetooth audio streaming. Now, the A829B has arrived with a Nano-matching 16GB storage. It also comes with a fine-sounding pair of cabled ear-buds, unlike its 4GB and 8GB siblings, which come with Sony’s DR-BT21GB Bluetooth headphones.
Summary: This is a music player and not as you might think a phone. In shape and size you could easily mistake it for a phone. To be precise it is a digital media player as it will play video as well as audio and of course it will display .jpg still images.
Summary: The Sony Walkman NWZ-A829 is a truly superb player in terms of usability, sound quality and design. It's not without its fair share of flaws -- notably the tricky video support -- but for most people it's an absolute must to consider, if not run out and buy
Pros: Sound quality, Screen quality, Drag-and-drop compatibility, Stereo Bluetooth
Cons: Price, Video management is tricky, No playback position bookmarking, No FM radio, No voice recording or gapless playback
Excerpt: Sony is moving on. It long ago conceded defeat in an unpopular war against Apple’s iPod , a war Sony lost because it adhered to a silly proprietary format (ATRAC), listened too hard to the needs of its music and movie stablemates instead of its customers, and served up lukewarm chow when it should have been changing the world. This much we know.
