I agree with Anak, sony has quite a few sold out products like the 7r, their ultra z1, their mdr1, and now this walkman. I have to pre order them in us and wait or pay crazy price to get it from ebay. I remember pouncing from store to store to get the mdr1 and z1 ultra and now the sony 7r and this walkman.
Does not seems like sony is loosing in all market segment.
read the sony's market share in cellphones and u will understand what i mean.
i would be happy to discuss this via pm and not derail this thread with off topic discussion.
