While the portable media player market might be dominated by the iPod and iPod touch, there are still plenty of choices when it comes to picking out devices from other companies. One such company would be Sony, which not too long ago revamped its Walkman brand with the introduction of Android-based portable media players. Now it looks like the company is trying to push the bar with its thinnest Walkman to date. Called the E470 Series, it features a thickness of only 7mm. Users get a 2″ LCD screen, Karaoke mode, and games like Tetris and Sudoku to keep you busy will you listen to tunes on the train.
Sony also introduced its new F800 Series – Android Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Walkman devices with 3.5″ displays, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors, support for iTunes and Windows Media Player for transferring media. It also features Bluetooth connectivity for those of you who dislike wires.
The new Walkman Mobile Entertainment Players will be available next month at Sony Stores, with the 16G F800 retailing for $269.99, 32GB F800 for $299.99, while the 4G E470 Series will retail for $79.99, 8GB for $89.99 and 16GB for $109.99.
