Sony Walkman Z review: Sony Walkman Z

 

It would seem that both Sony and Samsung are engaging in some kind of historical re-enactment of the great iPod Wars of 2007. That's the only way I have to explain the rash of portable media players I've been seeing recently.

The Walkman Z portable media player emphasizes music as the killer mobile app, integrating Sony's Music Unlimited service, high-quality headphones, and unmatched audio enhancement software.

Considering its premium price, the Walkman Z has limited video support, a thick design, mediocre screen resolution, short battery life, no memory expansion, and no cameras, and is built around a version of Android that's soon to be outdated.

The Walkman Z is Sony's iPod Touch for Android-loving audiophiles.

Sony Walkman Z series: A solid multimedia player with limited storage

 

Walkman is a familiar name in portable media players, going back several decades. Sony's Walkman Z Series ($210, as of June 1, 2012) is basically an Android phone without the phone, and with a strong emphasis on media playback and gaming.

The Sony Walkman Z Series combines a powerful processor, a good screen, and great audio processing. But if you're prepared to deal with a proprietary connector, a sealed battery, and an absence of expandable storage, you may want to check out the iPod...
