An as-yet unannounced Sony Walkman MP3 player has popped up for pre-order on UK online retailer Play.com.

The device adds a 4GB version to Sony’s recently launched NW series of Sports Walkman. The NWS706 is a tiny DAP that features noise-cancelling technology for use on busy streets or noisy gyms.

Specs are slim, but include a 3-line colour display, a quick-charge function, and a battery that feeds a whopping 50 hours of playback time. Unlike many other MP3 players, this one includes a FM tuner as well as line-in recording.

And the price? A relatively-low £179.99, although Play.com says that the device is still unavailable.

The previous maximum capacity of any of the NW series was 1GB, so in one fell swoop Sony has quadrupled its performance.
