The launch of Sony Walkman NW-ZX2, the company has ventured in a rejuvenated way into the sector again. To be with the advent of the smartphones, portable music players and mp3 players took a huge blow. The launch of Sony Walkman NW-ZX2 ensures that the company still has an interest it its Walkman series.
