Gone are the days of portable cassette players, but that doesn’t mean Sony can’t revive its Walkman brand. That’s exactly what they did with the NW-A100TPS. This special 40th anniversary edition has a special logo on the rear panel and includes a specially designed soft case package, which draws inspiration from the TPS-L2 Walkman, Sony’s first portable cassette player that was released in 1979.
The NW-A100TPS runs Android and boasts a special cassette tape user interface that is sure to bring back some memories, or at least for those who grew up with the Walkman. Featuring a 3.6-inch display, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth connectivity, possibly microSD expansion, and yes, a headphones jack. Expect it to hit stores in Europe (November) and Australia (December) this fall, priced at €440 and AU $599 respectively.
