Sony’s NW-Z1000 Android PMP Passes the FCC


It appears the Sony NW-Z1000 – their Android personal media player – will make its way out of their home country of Japan as it has found its way to the FCC. The device weights in at 4.3 inches and has a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 512MB of RAM, Bluetooth, WiFi and Android 2.3. It could easily pass as a phone at first glance but without phone radios it’s just a nice-sized PMP. Where exactly it’s headed we can’t say, but we’re hoping at least Canada and the US will both get some love. [via Droid-Dog]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Media players running android are pointless, it just makes you wish you had an android phone.
    Nice device though

    1. Not sure about that.  Wifi, android apps, music and movies..

      Sounds like 99% of what I do on my Android phone right now..just without the monthly fee. 

      This and a dumb-phone.  Score?

      1. it is the point of am android PMP, not having a monthly fee

    2. I have an Ipod touch, but it doesnt make me want a Iphone.

    3. My kids like the devices as well. My 12 year old just upgraded to Samsung Galaxy 5 from 3g – ipod touch.

    4. Nope. I have an Android phone (an EVO), but I want one of these excusively for media consumption. When I’m having a party, I like to play Google Music, Slacker, Dood’s Music Player, etc through my phone. If I’m doing that, people can’t call me to ask directions, text if we need them to pick anything up on the way, etc.

      Yes, I suppose I could just use my HTPC to play my music, but I also want a device I can take with me. And I don’t want that device to die after 6 hours of music.

  2. “The device weights in at 4.3 inches”
    weighs in? measures in? check your stuff bro

  3. You didn’t even mention the Walkman name in the post…

    THIS is the new “Sony Walkman” that will try to revitalize the name, much like the NW-HD5 and the Walkman X. Best of luck to them. I have a feeling the next version of the Walkman will be the device to buy, once Sony finalizes their buyout of Ericsson’s half of SE.
