Sony Walkman turns 34
Today the Walkman turns 34 years old, it was back in 1979 when the first production model was introduced. The brand is strong and recognizable and I hope Sony keeps it alive, although it might not be in the style as in the past, physical models. More likely, the brand will continue as either portable wearable Walkmans like the W-Series or integrated into the Xperia line of snartphones and tablets or perhaps both. Here's to more years for the Walkman and hopefully a return of more successive generations of current models.
Here are some links to browse and read about a lot of older walkmans, mainly cassette.
