In September 2011, Sony launched the “Walkman” Z Series of digital music players. Equipped with advanced sound-enhancing technologies, including the proprietary S-Master MX digital amplifier, modified for mobile devices, these are the best-sounding players in “Walkman” history. In addition to a full range of exclusive “Walkman” performance features, including the W.Music application that allows intuitive music browsing, and the W.Button, which makes it possible to control playback regardless of what is on the screen, “Walkman” Z series digital music players come with a wide range of exciting applications for the Android™ platform.
“Walkman” devices continue to enjoy a significant share of the Japanese market for digital music players. Having positioned “Walkman” Z as its flagship model, Sony will continue to enhance existing performance features and applications for the Android™ platform, with the aim of expanding the scope of mobile entertainment from music.
