The word “Walkman” brings back a lot of memories for some of us. Now, Sony is looking to upgrade your nostalgia. They have announced the new F800 series Walkman, and it comes complete with Android as the base. According to sony, it will be “an extreme on-the-go entertainment experience”.

There are three different versions of the device, ranging from 8GB to 32GB, with a 16GB model in-between. It has a 3.5″ LCD display, and plays, well, media… 20 hours audio and 4.5 hours video playback, as well as Google Play access. While we wait on pricing, be sure to let us know your thoughts below.

    If it is like the prior generations of Walkmans, (MP3 player ones, not the originals which were the sh*t) then the sound quality and battery life should be spectacular. Hopefully they have rectified the playlist on the go issue and I am set to upgrade. Also now perhaps Sony will make some Android based speakers instead of iPod ones.
