CD-RW drive is music to Sony's ears

Sony has released the first CD-RW and DVD-ROM drive to double as a portable audio player. The Sony MPDAP20U is designed like a CD Walkman and Sony hopes it will bridge the business and entertainment divide. The device can be connected to a PC either directly or via a desktop cradle/recharger that is bundled with the unit. In this configuration it operates as a CD/DVD player/burner and flash memory reader. The MPDAP20U connects via USB and has the ability to store images and compile video and audio files. When detached from a computer, the device works as a standalone audio player with compatibility for music CDs, MP3s and WAV files. The AV-IT player comes with accessories and a suite of software for playback and recording out of the box. The drive is available for a recommended retail price of $849.
