If you haven’t been a big fan of Sony Ericsson‘s Xperia devices, this device might make you yearn for your Walkman roots. While Xperia devices have improved substantially since last year, there’s still a little something they lack. People are more prone to like other manufacturers, even if the performance is similar. But Sony has just announced the new Walkman Z for the Japanese Market, and boy, is that device looking sweet.

To begin, this bad boy comes packed with a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, which should take care of all your media needs. Also, the Sony Walkman Z has upgraded to a 4.3-inch display with a 800 x 480 resolution (for those who like the big screens). While the RAM memory could have been better, 512 MB is definitely not too bad. The device also comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a bunch of multimedia features: microHDMI, WiFi, Bluetooth, DLNA, FM radio, Sony Ericsson’s music apps, active noise cancelation and more.



While the device is great for media playback (what it’s meant to do) it carries no cameras, which makes this more similar to a good old music/video player. It makes sense; this is more of a multimedia device. But come on, Sony. In this day and age, an Android device without cameras is quite outrageous.

Aside from that, this guy looks like a very promising gadget. It has better specs than the Xperia devices, and that Tegra 2 processor sure looks tempting. Plus, it’s a looker!

The device will be released in Japan for now, but we sure hope it can make the jump this side of the ocean. Release date in Japan is scheduled for December 10th, and there will be 3 versions available (as well as two colors–black and red). The 16 GB version goes for ¥28,000, the 32 GB version costs ¥33,000, and the 64 GB version will take ¥43,000 out of your pocket. In US dollars, the devices cost between $362 and $556, but you can expect those prices to be higher here (inflation, etc.)

Except for the camera (or lack thereof), this device looks like what the Xperia devices should have been in 2011. The processor, larger display and overall media features make this a great device compared to the Xperia line. The Walkman Z is surely not superior to most of the high-end phones coming out now, though. And with a December release, it’s actually quite outdated. (You might want to wait for the coming release of the next Nexus device).

What do you guys say? Would you rock a Sony Walkman Z? Check out the video posted below, and let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comment section, below.
