Sony Drops Price of N760C by $50
Sony has cut the official price of the PEG-N760C from $450 down to $400. This price is already in effect on the SonyStyle webstore. As always, Sony didn't announce this price cut or give a reason for it. There are a couple of possibilities. There are a lot of models out now, including Sony's own low-end S360, that have 16 MB of memory. The N760C's 8 MB is starting to look a bit cramped and this may be cutting into sales. A price reducton could lead to an increase in sales.
Another possibility is Sony could be getting ready to announce a replacement. The N760C is essentially a N710C with an updated version of the Palm OS and the N710C was announced last May, so this handheld is about 10 months old. That makes it the oldest model in Sony's handheld line. The company could be planning a new version that is a member of the T series with built-in MP3 playback. Or the new version, if there is one, could simply be an update with more RAM, like Sony did with the move from the S320 to the S360.
The N760C includes Palm OS 4.1 and its screen has 16-bit color. It has a built-in audio player so it can play music in both MP3 and ATRAC3 formats. It comes with an external control wand and clip-on headphones to make listening to music easier. Of course it has a Memory Stick slot and comes with an 8 MB Memory Stick.
It was originally released at $500. It dropped to $450 in early December.
