Sony launches NWZ-B170 series of Walkman MP3 players

Sony was the brand that revolutionized portable music players by launching the Walkman, many years ago. Though there has been a sea of evolution in this sphere of portable music players over the years, Sony has still been a strong player in this game and has continued to launch products that have successfully kept up with the times. Their Walkman range has been one of their longest standing products and the brand continues to build up on this form of technology. Keeping this in mind, Sony India has expanded its Walkman MP3 player family with the new NWZ- B170 series by introducing the NWZ-B172 and NWZ-B173, which they claim deliver one’s favourite beats in a flashy new design.
