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.

  3. With microsoft killing off zune hardware and new sony erickson phones being integrated with walkman, we may be seeing the end of the standalone player as we know it.

  10. Wow my blogger dashboard is not working on my pc, anyways i believe it is delayed and anything new would at the earliest show up in September.

    The new e series is out on some European Sony sites yet there is no press release about it. Perhaps the new a series will have a similar debut.

  11. Thanks ascariss. The more I think about it the chances are that the next a-series will just be a progression on the last one - which is a shame as I think there would be an appetite for a media player that was essentially the same as the SE Arc but without the 3g cell phone part and with better digital amp / equaliser etc.

    Or may be that's just me! - I'd snap up an Android Sony Walkman Arc that had excellent sound quality, at least 32GB storage, and the ability to playlist on the go & delete songs on player etc......
