Sony has announced a new Walkman in the form of the NWZ-F800 series. The F800 will come with Android 4.0 out of the box, a 3.5-inch multi-touch display and Bluetooth support. Other features include an S-Master MX Digital Amplifier, five Clear Audio technologies and built-in xLOUD speaker system. Three variants are on offer with 8GB, 16GB and 32GB storage capacities, promising 20 hours of audio playback and 4.5 hours of video playback.

Whilst not strictly Xperia related, we are starting to cover more of Sony’s ‘smart’ mobile products including tablets and this fits that description. Given the convergence of technologies in smartphones, however, we do wonder how much of a market there is for such a device nowadays, but we suspect it will come down to price which remains a mystery right now.
