Sony unveils DVD Walkman with detachable LCD

Movies on the move

Sony has unveiled its DVD (digital versatile disc) Walkman, the D-VM1, which allows users to listen to music or watch movies using a detachable LCD (liquid crystal display) screen.

The D-VM1 consists of a compact DVD/CD player and a separate 3.5in TFT (thin film transistor) colour LCD, which is controlled using its Jog Dial control system. The player can be connected to a television for viewing at home.

The six-hour battery provides up to four hours of replay when the LCD panel is used, according to Sony spokeswoman Suzuyo Suzuki.

The D-VM1 can replay the following formatted discs: DVDs, DVD-Rs and DVD-RWs that have been recorded using video mode, video CDs, music CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RWs that have been recorded in video or music formats.

The company will launch the product 21 November in Japan at the price around 100,000 yen (£582.70) and should arrive on UK shores in the second quarter of next year, Suzuki said.
