Own a Sony Walkman that is of the modern variety? Yes, I’m talking about the ones that play your favorite tunes from an MP3 format instead of using the old school cassette tape. Well, if you so happen to be rocking to the Walkman NWZ-A860, S760BT and E460 models, then you will be pleased to note that Music Unlimited will support these three models.
All you need to do is download a set-up launcher in order to gain access to more than 10 million unique songs. Music Unlimited will benefit folks living in the US, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand. First time purchasers of these Walkman models will receive a free 180 day trial of Music Unlimited service upon launch, letting you download your favorite songs instantly.
Of course, the Walkman models are not yet out in the market, but they are already on their way there sometime this month, where you can pick them up from authorized Sony dealers and online from reputable sources. Will it make a dent in the iTunes armor? Definitely not, but at least it shows that Sony isn’t about to throw in the towel where portable audio is concerned. [Press Release]
