Sony announces the new Walkman NWZ F800 running on Android 4.0

Written by Jayvee Fernandez

While HTC went the “beats” way and included Dr. Dre Beats headphones with most of their high end smartphones, Sony continues the Walkman line with the latest version of Android.

The NWZ F800 Walkman also known as the F800 or simply the new Walkman phone from Sony is a beauty. It’s basically comparable with Sony’s current line of Xperia devices but focuses more on audio enhancements.

The NWZ-F800 will be available in black and red and comes in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities. There’s no documentation about it having a removable battery nor memory expansion, which MAY be a bummer. It will retail in Sony stores and authorised outlets from the end of October 2012. No pricing available as of late.

What definitely makes this device shine for serious audiophiles is the S-Master MX which beats competition by a mile.
