|Anybody who knows what the connection between a pencil and the old school Sony Walkman in the days of cassette tapes can rest assured that your first portable music player lives on today in the digital realm. Sony just offered up two new Sony Walkman variants, the all inclusive F800 that allows for more than just music. It's on the Android platform (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) which allows for other things to happen, like apps for various types of media, as well as email, web browsing and maps. It's also bluetooth ready, so you can use it on the go with wireless headphones or at home via your stereo without the hassle of plugging in.
The Sony Walkman E470 walks the other side of that line with its simplicity. It's a straight-up music player that includes a few music extras like karaoke and synced song lyrics, plus Tetris and Sudoku so you have something to do whil listening to all of that music. Check out the Sony Walkman F800 for $270 (16G) and $300 (32G), while the Sony Walkman E470 arrives at $110 (16G) or $90 (8G). Both models also tap into Sony's cloud-based Music Unlimited Service, which allows them to compete with all of the other streaming music services out there.
