Sony Network Walkman to Support MP3?

sony network walkman hard drive mp3 player

My biggest complaint about the Sony Network Walkman was that it didn’t support the standard MP3 format, instead making people convert their music to Sony’s proprietary ATRAC format.

Sony has done a bit of an about face and announced they start supporting MP3 format on flash based music players.

Their is no info yet on whether they will extend this to their Network Walkman hard drive based player.

If only Sony would ditch their Memory Stick flash card formats and switch to the industry standard CompactFlash or Secure Digital cards: their incompatibility stopped me from buying any Sony PDAs, cameras, or music players.
