Sony has long been involved in the personal and portable entertainment business and the company appears to have scored again with the Sony Walkman NW-A1000. What Sony has done is completely recreate its legendary Walkman – once an industry leader – and is taking on the venerable iPod in the process. On the surface, Sony has come up with a marvelous looking device in the Sony Walkman NW-A1000. Some in the industry and consumers all round and about have concluded that the new Sony Walkman NW-A1000 actually makes the iPod look dull and … can we say it? Boring.

The video and audio elements of the Sony Walkman NW-A1000 media player really are top of the line and keeping up with the competition today. The audio is crisp and the video elements is precise and clear. There are few complaints that can be lodged in this regard. In addition, when it comes to the cost associated with the purchase of Sony Walkman NW-A1000, the device is competitively priced. Indeed, on so many levels, the Sony Walkman NW-A1000 really is a good product for the money.

In addition to looking good, the device generally is easy to use. The navigation and controls – centered on the lower part of the front face – are convenient and easy to manipulate. The only drawback to the navigation elements of Sony Walkman NW-A1000 is that the joystick that is part of the system is a bit difficult to manipulate at times. Some might argue that Sony has gone a bit too far in styling the Sony Walkman NW-A1000 at the expense on some level of functionality. Even with that said, when all is said and done, the Sony Walkman NW-A1000 can be expected to nab a decent market share for its functionality and its design.
