New Sony Walkmen get own FM transmitter and car charger at last

Now that Sony's range of Walkman-branded players are finally starting to look like the real deal (maybe not this one, eh?) it's about time that the Tokyo giant pulled its finger out and started supporting it with a few more decent add-ons like the car FM transmitter and charger that went on sale in Japan yesterday.

The DCC-FMT50U costs ¥6,195 (US$52) and should be able to play anything through its standard audio jack, although for some reason the specs state that only the NW-A3000/A1000 Walkmen support playback, which has gotta be wrong. Still, anything that likes USB juice can get a charge and there are four preset buttons for the FM transmitter.
