Sony developing video Walkman
Apple launched a video-enabled iPod last October.
Yoshioka also said on the sidelines of the news conference that he aims to double Walkman's share in the global portable digital music player market from the current 10 percent, without elaborating. Sony and any other portable music player makers are expected to face a new and potentially formidable rival next month as Microsoft Corp., the world's largest software maker, launches its Zune music player, further stoking competition. Sony also said it will start rolling out five new models of a flash-memory-based Walkman, shaped like a perfume bottle, towards the end of the year at home and abroad. A 4-gigabyte model with a noise-reduction function is expected to sell for around 29,000 yen ($240) in Japan, Sony said.
