Here’s where your brand new tablet won’t be helpful – under the water. Which might explain why Sony has recently launched a new water resistant Walkman series, the NWZ-250, which offers either 2GB or 4GB of internal capacities at your choice, along four kinds of flavors, including silver, black, lime green, and magenta, with battery that can handle up to 11 hours of audio playback and minuscule weight of 43 grams only. Count 60 bucks for this little fellow when picking it up, later this month. Full PR after the break.
