People love karaoke. Okay, not everyone, but a lot of people do (especially the Japanese). Which is why Sony’s new E450 Walkman sounds interesting, though it’s sadly only hitting Europe at this point. It’s got a Karaoke Mode in which you sync lyrics of a song to the device, which then reduces the singer’s vocals in the song using some custom software. Just make sure that you’re not bothering other people when you start belting out “Don’t Stop Believin’.” There’s video playback on the device as well, which should get you a ten hour battery life, or fifty hours with music only.
The Walkman E450 is available in August, with pricing currently unknown.
