    They look like you can use wifi and bluetooth, but does that mean they're no longer wired for sound? As this is what I think of when I think walkmans:

    I was excited then I saw Android and I'm now much less excited, it is such a stupid OS to use, you have to use a massive battery just to run a damn walkman, had a Cowon something and it was an older version of Android but that made it the size and weight of a phone but it just played music

    I have seen more people retrofitting 1.8" SSDs in older HDD based players, the battery life would be insane in them
