You know, karma is a bitch sometimes. It was earlier this week that we learned that the Sony Ericsson W580 was going to be a North America exclusive phone, and then Sony goes along and announces this super amazing, badass bookshelf speaker system for Japan and Europe.


The NAS-50HDE includes a fancy LCD interface, 80GB hard drive, and the ability to rip music CDs and MP3s (from players) onto the hard drive with lightening fast speeds. Two 85-watt satellite speakers pump out the tunes for an all-around superb player. All hope is not lost, Americans. This player is set for a summer release overseas and could maybe, possibly come to the States later in the year. Please?
