First walkman mobile entertainment player from Sony – powered by Android.


Press Release:

Sony is once again turning the dreams of audiophiles on-the-move into reality with the launch of its Z Series, the first-ever Walkman powered by Android. Dedicated to providing a truly exceptional mobile audio experience, the Walkman is packed with Sony’s innovative sound technologies.

 Featuring Sony’s new S-Master MX digital amplifier that significantly reduces noise and distortion level in music, it also offers the best-ever Walkman in-ear experience on the go,  driven by the full range of five Clear Audio Technologies – S-Master MX, Clear Bass, Clear Stereo, Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), and EX headphones. The components come together to deliver a truly phenomenal portable audio experience that many have come to expect from a Sony Walkman.

A new distinctive W.BUTTON launches the unique W.Control, allowing users to intuitively browse through their music collection with a simple flick of the art cover and enjoy stunning on-screen visualisations while the music plays. Walkman Z Series can even sort the music collection using SensMe – from a total of 14 mood-themed channels to suit the time of the day or the mood of the moment.

Walkman Z series is also the first Mobile Entertainment Player from Sony that’s powered by Android. The device allows you to enjoy a generous choice of preinstalled apps, and get more from the ever-growing range at Android Market™.

Sharing Music Passion and Connecting with Ease

Walkman Z Series has a unique ergonomic body design, enabling the xLOUD speaker system to offer a high level of clear sound reproduction from its built-in speaker – users can now listen in to their favourite tunes with friends and loved ones without a speaker dock.

Much more than just a music player, Walkman Z Series allows the sharing of content, either at home or on-the-move wirelessly via Wi-Fi and connects to other DLNA-enabled devices such as the newly launched 3D Blu-ray home theatre system BDV-N590. Users can simply ‘throw’ music, pictures and videos from their Walkman screen by ‘flicking’ them directly to compatible TVs, PCs, or home audio systems to stream their media effortlessly.

The Walkman can be connected directly to the TV via the micro HDMI out for super-size enjoyment of videos, photos and games for high definition fun. It can also be effortlessly linked via Bluetooth® to compatible speakers, headphones, hi-fi systems or car stereos eliminating wire clutter.


Maximum Visual Entertainment

Music, videos, games and apps come alive on the unique anti-reflective 4.3” multi-touch LCD screen. Its high responsiveness combined with a speedy 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor keep things snappy whether users are browsing web pages, watching movies or downloading apps.

Available in a 16GB capacity, the new Walkman® Z1000 Mobile Entertainment Player from Sony is currently retailed at Jumbo Electronics showrooms and other authorised outlets.
