The new Sony Walkman A845 is thin, but not thin enough

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.
