Sony reveals new MiniDisc range too

You've read about the MP3 player, here's the MiniDisc article

Continued from previous article

Sony has also expanded its MiniDisc range, with the introduction of the worlds smallest recordable MDs -- the MZ-R90, the MZ-R91 and the world's smallest MD player, the MZ-E90.

The MZ-R90, weighing 105g without batteries, has full recording and editing functions and a battery life of up to 29 hours. It also introduces the Name Bank functions. This means, once you've entered a group's name, only the first three letters need to be entered next time the same band is recorded. The Joint Text function means that all data on a CD, including text, is transferred when recording to MD.

The MZ-R91 weighs 5g more and comes in a blue polished aluminium case. Both models have a back-lit LCD remote control, jog lever for editing and selecting tracks, and a smoother-than-before pop-up loading mechanism.

For those that have no need of recording functions, having a MD hi-fi separate, the MZ-E90 is playback only. This weighs 70g without batteries and offers up to 56 hours of battery life. There is a remote stick controller on the headphones.

And the Discman? Take me back to the previous article
