Remember those times when Walkman was everything to us? Running to the cassette stores and getting a set of latest movies songs? Or getting a specially recorded cassette made with our customised mix?

Life was different; music wasn't available to us just at a click. While many might find it old, the era of cassettes and Walkman was a feeling that still lingers and makes us value the art of music most fascinatingly.

Sony was the pioneer of Walkman and every millennial had owned one at least before we moved to the disc man. Seems like the iconic maker has decided to take us down the memory lane again as Sony has released a Walkman on the eve of their 40th anniversary at IFA.

Well, keeping the technology in mind, they have launched it with a twist. The Walkman doesn't play cassettes but has special cassette tape user interface and screensaver which makes you feel it can.

The device can be connected with the Wi-Fi and runs on Android for music streaming.
