Will this see an Australian release? For that matter, will any of the new models on this site recently be released in Australia?
Sighhh...I really hope Sony realise that there are many people outside of Japan who would like one of these.
So far there has been no information regarding release outside of Japan, but I would wait for CES 2012, I am sure something will be announced there.
The new S-series and E-series are available in Australia, but the new A-series is not. I'm hoping that the Z-series will be released in Australia next year, but who knows! Perhaps CES 2012 will have that answer.
Based on what I've seen in the video, the touch sensitivity doesn't look so good. Watch the first few parts where the guy tries the Z Series, tinkering on the next button. There's 1 second delay. If you're going to make a touchscreen gadget, better enhance or do good in the touch sensitivity.
I saw new color of walkman z series (It' sapecial edition) --> http://store.sony.jp/Special/Audio/Walkman/Z1000/Originalmodel/index.html
