Sony X-Series disappearing from Sony Europe websites?
So it appears that the X-Series is done, at least in Europe according to Sony websites. It is no longer displayed on Sony UK, Sony France, Sony Poland, Sony Sweden, still alive and well on the Sony Germany website but this is a special edition model.
Does this mean a new model is due to replace the X-Series? More after the break.
Sony Insider last year claimed new Walkmans would be released in the January to March timeframe, with only the new A-Series launching in Europe in February 2010. So what happened to those other “new” walkmans? One can only speculate, perhaps they were abandoned, or pushed back for a late summer/early fall release.
One thing is for sure the X-Series in its current form is finished, and Sony will be discounting stock to move it. The US and Canada still have the X, but it remains to be seen for how long.
