40th Anniversary edition of the Sony Walkman

Sony is set to release a 40th anniversary edition digital Walkman that sports a retro soft case giving it the look of the original 1979 cassette player. The new Walkman will have a 3.6 inch screen, 26 hour battery life, and Hi-Res audio capabilities. It is set to retail at around $500 USD.
