Sony’s new Walkman A845 is as slim as four SD cards. That’s slim, indeed. But even at 7.2mm, it’s still beat by the anorexic iPod nano at 6.2mm. Sorry, Sony . That’s all we care about these days. We’re that shallow.
It doesn’t matter that the A845 has a slightly bigger 2.8-inch OLED screen or comes with noise cancelling headphones. It also doesn’t matter that this Walkman works with iTunes via included software or that it can output standard-def video. All the tech world cares is about is that Apple has a thinner iPod than your Walkman, Sony. This makes you the loser once again. Oh, and let’s not forget that the iPod nano can record video too. But that’s a moo point in this argument.
