Sony Announces Android-Powered Walkman Z For Japan
If last month we’ve seen the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman, this time it’s Sony alone bringing back the Walkman brand and they are doing it with the help of Android. Sony has just announced the Walkman Z which is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
There will be three variants: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The phone features a 4.3-WVGA screen, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 512MB RAM, no camera, HDMI-out, WiFi, Bluetooth, DLNA and FM Radio receiver. On the software side, on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread Sony will pack a bunch of multimedia applications, such as music player, video player, DLNA client, photo viewer, noise cancelling software and more.
The price will vary from 28,000 yen (around $363) for the 16GB version, 33,000 yen ($429) for the 32GB all the way to 43,000 yen (roughly $559). The Walkman Z will arrive in two color flavors: red and blue.
