...for the Android Lollipop update. But why Sony would ditch the branded app – could it be to simplify what the app does to new users? Could it be to tie into the rebranding to "PlayStation Music", which will replace Music Unlimited at the end of this month? Could it be to disassociate some of Sony's assets in a looming break-up of the Sony Mobile business?

I guess this is another nail in the coffin of this legendary name. For those of us who actually had Walkman devices, it's especially sad.

I guess I will keep buying Walkman MP4 players, for the sake of nostalgia.
