New! The Sony Walkman.
Sony just introduced an exciting new portable audio product at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show: The Sony Walkman. No, not the tape cassette player that started the personal portable music era back 35 years ago. This is the $1200 Walkman NW-ZX2 High Resolution Audio Handset with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 128GB of storage, a microSD slot, a touchscreen display, and Web connectivity.

 Sony Walkman: It's Alive!

You may have heard that Sony is hitting “erase” on the Walkman cassette player, stopping sale of the machine that started the personal portable music era 30 years ago. Not quite.

Sony has stopped producing and selling the cassette players in Japan, reports Shan Li in the Los Angeles Times, but at this time there are no plans to stop sales in the U.S.A.
