If it weren’t for the Japanese market we’re not sure Sony would continue to build MP3 players and compatible docks. But hey, that’s not the case, so today Sony Japan announced the CMT-L7D.
Yup, it’s a dock for your Sony MP3 player and can pump out tunes through its 50 watt speakers. But the real meat of this player is the 9-inch touchscreen. It sports the now standard Sony UI and lets you watch movies, control your tunes and access media from a connected SD card or USB stick.
I wouldn’t expect the CMT-L7D to hit Stateside ever. But when it does arrive in Japan it will set Japanese consumers back $585 on October 11th.
