Sony Canada quietly introduces new S-Series
Sony Canada recently began selling the new S-Series via the Sony Style website. Unfortunately there was no press release from Sony regarding this event, so the appearance of the new S-Series was a surprise. More after the break.

Only one model and colour option is available, black and 16GB. The S745 comes with noise cancellation and the ability to output to a TV using the optional video output cable (model WMCNWV10). I tried looking for this cable on the website but could not find it. Price for the new S-Series is $199.99 Canadian without taxes. Which is fair price if you ask me.
It is unknown if the 32GB model will be released in Canada, but I would not count on it, since Sony seems to want to keep the X-Series as it’s top capacity model.
Additionally the X-Series’ price has been cut by $50 bringing the price to $449.99. A price cut was needed in order to move units off the shelves since the original price was not cutting it. Unfortunately this is still too expensive for some and I doubt a $50 price cut will be sufficient.
This does raise the question, the X-Series’ price has been cut in many countries, does this mean a new product is due and will replace the X? CES is coming up in January and there might be a high chance something new will be introduced.
