Who could ever deny the immense success of the Sony Walkman line? This is why they have returned with a big bang, starting with the Walkman Z1000—the first ever Android powered music player.

Originally, the Z1000 made its appearance in Japan back in September 2011. However, the executives over at Sony agreed that the unit was nifty enough for the US market. Its size, however, is a bit bulky with a 4.3-inch display. It does make up for it by having extra functionality such as the ability to download Android Market apps as well as DLNA support for TV compatibility. Moreover, the Z1000 has a microHDMI port and Sony’s S-Master MX amplifier to boot.

The Android Gingerbread powered Sony Walkman Z1000 will be available starting spring 2012 at options 8GB ($249), 16GB ($279) and 32GB ($329).
