You’ve got to hand it to Walkman. Despite the odds stalked against them, the brand is still alive and kickin’. In fact, there’s a new Walkman coming to town in two months time.
It’s the Walkman NWZ-E470 series and it’s coming in September. No word on pricing yet, but what we do known for sure right now is it’ll be comprised of three models – the 4GB NWZ-E473, the 8GB NWZ-E474, and the 16GB NWZ-E475.
And don’t think this Walkman is just made for music. This pint-sized media player can do videos too, with two pre-installed games (Puyo Pop Fever and NUMBER PLACE) for some fun on the side.
Personally, I turn to my Android for my entertainment needs – games, videos, music, you name it. But hey, that’s just me. Not everyone’s into Android, and I’m sure, there’s more than a handful of folks out there interested in getting a Walkman as their next gadget investment, especially if the price is right.
That’s it for now. We’ll talk more about this new Walkman once it officially arrives in the Philippines.
In the meantime, you can check out the full press release below for more juicy tidbits on this latest device from Sony to don the Walkman name:
