Sony has officially unveiled the Walkman Z-series, a new line of personal media players running Android, powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips. The 4.3-inch device was on show at IFA 2011 last week, albeit without the official name or branding. The Walkman Z sports a WVGA (800x480) display, 512MB of RAM and between 16 and 64GB of internal storage depending on your chosen model.
Software-wise, you've got a skinned version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with additional software perks including DLNA connectivity and FM radio. Being a Tegra device, you'll also get 1080p playback, either through the included micro-HDMI port or over the air using DLNA.
The Walkman Z-series is due to hit Japanese retailers from December 10, with prices starting at ¥28,000 (~$360) for the 16GB model. Currently Sony is offering no additional information on wider international availability or pricing.
