Sony shows off Android 4.0 ‘Walkman’ media player
Although it seemed like the Walkman brand name had finally been put to sleep permanently, Sony has brought it back.
The Sony F800 Walkman will be the first Sony media player to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Sony’s latest has a 3.5-inch touchscreen and runs on a dual-core Nvidia processor. The device will be available in 16GB or 32GB flavors.
F800 buyers will have access to a number of pre-installed apps, including Sony-built media gallery and email apps. Users will have access to the Google Play Store, as well.
Furthermore, the device has built-in Bluetooth, S-Master MX Digital Amplifier and the five Clear Audio technologies.
The 16GB F800 will sell for an expensive $269.99 and the 32GB for $299.99.
