2012-07-12 17.28.02.jpgSony have today lifted the covers off four new Walkman models; the F800, S770BT, E570 and E470.

Top of the line is the F800. Running Android Ice Cream Sandwich, it has a 3.5-inch touchscreen and has full access to the complete suite of apps available through the Google Play store.

The F800 also supports the FLAC lossless audio format, has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and will ship in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB sizes.

The remaining three are set to be smaller, less advanced and presumably more affordable.

The S770BT has a 2-inch non touch screen and measures just 7mm thick. It’s supplied with matching Bluetooth headphones.

The E750 uses the same screen and keeps the same dimensions, but focusses on noise cancelling technologies, both onboard and in its supplied headphones.

Lastly, the E470 is more for the fashion conscious music fan, available in six different colours and comes complete with a karaoke mode.

All the Walkmans hit European stores today, and are compatible with Sony’s Music Unlimited service.
