The Sony Walkman NWZ-A845 is described by Sony, as the slimmest ever Walkman. It features a 2.8-inch wide OLED screen and a claimed battery life of up to 29 hours.

The Sony A845 is compatible with Apple’s iTunes and can be connected to a TV via an A/V output capable, allowing users to watch content saved on the device on a TV (in 720×480 resolution).

The model comes with noise cancelling headphones, which Sony says can cancel around 98% of ambient noise. The A845 has 16GB of memory and is available to buy now.
