Sony releasing Walkman to mark 40th anniversary

Sony is releasing a limited edition Walkman to mark its 40th anniversary.

The iconic portable cassette player has been turned into a graphic and placed on a 3.6 inch display to replicate the retro device, which was originally released in 1979, and was the popular choice to listen to music on throughout the 80s and 90s.

Sony said: "Take a trip down memory lane with the 40th anniversary edition. Not everything was better back then, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds with the heritage design of Walkman whilst having cutting edge technology at your fingertips."

The Walkman is now powered by Android and benefits from a S-Master HX digital amplifier, providing high-resoultion sound, plus 16GB of storage.

However, the player comes with a hefty price tag of £400.
