Sony A800 Coming to Canada

Sony's elusive A800 Walkman is coming to Canada, Electronista has discovered. While the device was previously announced for Europe, the device has been announced for North America through Sony's Canadian branch and suggests pricing directly competitive with players from Apple, SanDisk, and other rivals but with the added playback of H.264 and MPEG-4 videos.

The launch lineup will also be slightly different than in Europe, Sony Canada reveals. Available in May, the players will ship in 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities for $170, $230, and $300 Canadian respectively; while matching the iPod nano's price, several color options will also be dropped. Blue will be scrapped entirely for the launch while limiting pink only to the 4GB model and white for the 2GB edition. A US release remains unannounced and hasn't been explained by the electronics maker.
