Sony's Walkman Z1000 arrives at FCC

updated 11:50 pm EST, Tue December 13, 2011

Launch details remain unclear

Sony's NW-Z1000 series portable media players, which carry the Walkman branding, have arrived at the FCC for testing. Test documents do not point to any unannounced functionality, as the device was merely tested for certification using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios, however the presence at the FCC suggests the Android device may be close to launch in the US.

The new Walkman appears to be aimed directly at the iPod touch, integrating a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and an 800x480 touchscreen that measures 4.3 inches. Other features include DLNA media sharing and HDMI output.

Sony has already launched the players in Japan, however the US launch has yet to be pinned to a specific date. The Japanese variant sells for the equivalent of $364 with 16GB of storage, $429 with 32GB or $559 with 64GB. [via WirelessGoodness]
