Category: Tech

A whopping four decades have passed since Sony forever changed the world of consumer electronics with their portable, cassette tape-playing Walkman. Now, to celebrate the legendary musical device, the brand is releasing a digital 40th-anniversary edition.

Officially called the NW-A100TPS, this handheld music player runs on an Android OS, comes with 16 gigs of onboard memory (expandable by microSD card), and even has WiFi streaming support, Bluetooth connectivity, 26 hours of battery life, and a 3.6″ full-color touchscreen display. And while it’s labeled with anniversary graphics, the brand also imbued it with a good deal more nostalgic value by including a soft case made to look like the original TPS-L2 Walkman. Set to hit shelves in Europe this November, the expected retail price should be around $500.
