Looks very 80's in boxy kinda way. I like it!

besides wireless headphone connectivity, what kind of capabilities will having bluetooth allow the A820 to be able to do?

i may upgrade from my beloved A818 only if:
1) the price is closer to $250 than $350
2) the SQ improved or remained the same
3) i read good things about the new square pad design

Are they using the same chip for SQ as A818?

Wireless speakers?

I wonder if theres FM and what the A6xx replacement will be like?

Let´s hope they build in faster flash memory this time around...
Apart from sq, which I think in its own rights is right up there with zune 80 and classic(yes), the ui and responsiveness is really what sets the nwz players apart from the competition. As the original press release states you´ll be able to do even more from the Now Playing screen and getting around the player has been improved as well. Looks like an impulse buy

love it! i like this design more than the a80x/81x shape (not that it was ugly or anything, far from it!) dpad looks easy to use, and going by the dpad on the sony ericsson k770i (same shape as this) and will be very easy to use!

i dont see why Sony would change the audio chip, they would obviously know that its very good (if they have seen all the reviews etc from a808/a818)
Lets hope they found a way to make it better though!

16gb and bluetooth, just what i wanted! 2.4" screen (taken from the sony ericsson w910, i wonder?)

now, just hope sony ericsson start using the same audio chips (i wish, like thats gonna happen any time soon lol)

I agree - I much prefer the look and aesthetics of this walkman to the other Sony walkmans!

stuge - me too!!! I just discovered a simple way round the lack of gapless facility. I'll just rip all my gapless albums as one track, and hey presto - gapless playback. I really wanted the 16GB but couldn't consider it (seriously) without gapless. As I don't have a heap of gapless albums to rip, it will be easy to do, and then I kind of get my own 'version' of gapless. I won't be able to skip tracks of course, but that doesn't matter as I tend to listen to gapless albums in their entirety anyway. Woohoo, I love Sony! Big kisses to them all

Soozie, you could always rip them both ways (individual tracks, one track). so that you can select a single if you don't want to listen to thentire album (you probably already thought of this though).

The dock for this DAP is WAAAY to expensive, even with it adding the recording capabilities. Will it work with the old dock by chance?

anyone would comment the SQ of this A820? any specs yet? will it remain the sames as A81x series or better? i'm not too concern about the video, although i do like bigger screen.

i really like to get a Sony A2DP DAP. the fact is my A816 is a Valentine gift from my gal 6 days ago. if i put this V-gift for sales too soon i'll be in deep trouble

What dock, what dap, where are you seeing prices???

I just checked SonyStyle, there's no pricing for the new models and no option to pre-order either
