New Sony Walkman Pops up on UK Retail Site

The portable cassette players once nearly universally identified as the Walkman may have seen better days, but their spirit is still alive, so far as Sony is concerned. The company is apparently set to release the latest entry in the line, the slick-looking NWZA865B, a 16GB portable media player with wireless file sharing and music streaming capabilities. 

The 16GB model is also likely one of a number of capacities to be offered, ranging from 8GB to 64GB. The device is available for viewing on UK retailer Buy.com with a £130 ($213) price tag and a July 31st release date.

That is a lot cheaper than an iPod with that capacity, but as long as my reliable old shuffle works, reliable old shuffle it shall remain.

Guess its kinda hard for anyone to keep up with Apple these days. Maybe it'll do well, but im not so sure with that price tag.

8GB aren't that much for me, anyway seems to be a nice device.
