Will the new Walkman be delayed?
I am sure everyone is aware of the devastating earthquake in Japan, so it would come as no surprise to hear that various industries have shut down due to the earthquake. I've been following the developments of the new Vaio SB laptop and supposedly there are now supply issues for the CTO models. Question arises will the new Walkman also be delayed or have supply issues? I wouldn't believe so since most if not all of Sony's Walkman players are assembled outside of Japan, mainly in Malaysia. But there will be some shortages of various components from suppliers like NAND flash. So perhaps maybe Sony will delay the introduction of the new Walkman? This remains to be seen.
