I didn't know the Walkman brand still existed. Is it viable in Japan, even without the Miku tie-in?

It's still around, but they don't release new models/products as often as they used to. A shame, really, Walkmans are often good quality electronics. I guess it just isn't a trendy brand right now.

Still, this is such a feat. To sell out in less than 6 hours.

Although I'm more than certain this will not happen if they're in America. The Walkman is seemingly dead in the Western world to me.

Well there was the Sony Ericsson phones that were popular 4 years ago or so. They were walkman phones.

But gaaaaah. I was going to order one of those. I mangaged to get to the preorder site about half an hour after they stopped taking orders. Anime cry
