Sony unveil limited edition Walkman for 40th anniversary

The retro favourite has been given a makeover

Sony have designed a limited edition Walkman for the 40th anniversary of the device.

Celebrating 40 years since the release of the original model, Sony have revealed an all-new Walkman, the model NW-A100TPS, which will be available in limited numbers and released in November.

The original Walkman cassette was released in 1979, and was discontinued in 2012 after 33 years of production.

Unlike its predecessors, the device has full digital capabilities and boasts a 26-hour battery life. The new Walkman will also feature 16GB of storage, and retail for roughly £400.

Check out the new Walkman below, which was unveiled at the IFA 2019 Trade Show.

35,000 cassettes were sold in the UK in the first half of 2019.
