Prototype Walkman at IFA 2013
AV Watch is always a good place to find the unexpected/unknown and again it has delivered us the second unknown Walkman. The front of the device matches the image shown during the press conference. A quick inspection of the image shows a metal frame/body, faux leather (perhaps rubber) back, NFC logo, a reset button lower left and a speaker in the Walkman logo. There is some kind of label near the bottom, perhaps with model information and certification logos. The slight bump in the back might be for a more advanced amplifier, or meant to mimic some older walkman design. Front sports no physical buttons and of course a touchscreen (possibly full HD). The right side probably features the volume and playback controls like on the F-Series.
Using the press conference image and dimensions of the new F-Series, a rough guess at the dimensions of the new Walkman are as follows:
Width - 67-68 mm
Height - 132-134 mm
Screen size - 4.7 inch
The above values are just estimates based upon the image from the show. If anyone has any photos of this prototype walkman from some other site or they took themselves, please reply in the comments below. Two more images after the break.
