The Walkman is truly an icon of the 1980s – it allowed angsty teens back then (teens are still angsty these days, although many of them have fallen to the dark side and ended up emo and all) to rock on to their favorite bands without raising the ire of folks around them, since all sound will be channeled into a pair of headphones or earphones, where you are then transported into your own world. Sony Japan intends to celebrate Walt Disney’s 110th birthday by introducing a new range of Walkman – the NW-S760/S760K/S760BT. This unique digital audio player will feature Disney’s more famous characters, in addition to dedicated Wallpapers and the choice between one of Walt Disney’s famous quote – these few will also be thrown into the mix, “The era we are living in today is a dream coming true.”, “Happiness is a state of mind. It’s just according to the way you look at things.”, and “Ideas come from curiosity.” No idea on whether this special edition Walkman range will make it Stateside or not.
