Sony has announced a new version of its Network Walkman in three new iPod mini-like colors. “They changed the name a bit (it’s now the NW-HD2 rather than the NW-HD1), switched the backlight color to blue, and added three new colors (pink, blue, and silver), but Sony’s new version of their 20GB Network Walkman digital audio is just as craptacular as it was when it first came out, i.e. it still doesn’t play MP3s unless you convert them into Sony’s proprietary ATRAC3 format first,” reports Engadget. The NW-HD2 will be released in Japan on October 10. U.S. availability was not announced.
