  1. Can't wait, what for another overpriced piece Sony tech, wow it has GPS. But it's only 16gb & has a 25hr battery life - bet that drops significantly once you start using things like GPS & Apps.

  2. A Walkman that finally supports FLAC, sounds good but with 32GB max capacity, memory seems a bit small for lossless - another Sony cock-up.

    Sony - how about giving us bigger memory capacities or a microSD card slot in Walkmans

  3. Sony. Putting in useful functions, one by one. Years after they should have been present.

  4. The New Sony Walkman E and F series are now available to preorder at sony.com :D

  5. Wow...how many more years before we get a player with 64 or 128 GB from Sony? They already released the 64 GB in the form of NW-A847 in 2009, but why go backward and max out a player in 2012 with only 32 GB?

  6. How come the 32GB F-series is cheaper than the 32Gb Z-series?

  7. The new F is supposed to be a model under the Z, plus it has a smaller screen.

    1. Smaller screen was my thought too but I thought power wise it's the same? Is the F slower?

  8. why didn't they ever update the walkman z instead of making a new walkman? Really Sony I thought you cared about your customers.

  9. I can't wait for it. I have the E,A,Z,and S series, and I'm looking forward for another great Walkman

    Seriously, who runs this company? We finally get FLAC. Guess the guy who gave us, what was it, ATRAC? finally fell on his sword. Now they insult us with 32gb. Please do something right for once. I wanna be proud of my Walkman especially with all the fruit lovers running around like lemmings. SONY YOU MUST DO BETTER. BIGGER FLASH OR MICROSD. Just give us a microseconds slot and I'm happy.

  11. There is 64gb model F807 stop rattling and do some research.

  12. Not available in India

  13. Does the cover art tagged to FLAC file appear when we play the file?
