Is the world ready for another Walkman? Sony thinks so, but you can forget about the bulky yellow device that ushered in a generation of mobile music consumption, or any of its more recent iterations.
For one, the sleek, matte black device is designed for high-end audiophiles. While the price point is TBD, several sources tell us it will be in the $1,200 range when it debuts this spring. By comparison, the diminutive NWZ-A17 Walkman, released last year, carries a $300 price point.
