Sony Kills Cassette Walkman
The Cassette Walkman Meets Its End At The Hands Of Sony
Sony has finally put down its dying breed of Cassette Walkmans – although it is surprising to know that they were still in production. With 30 years of life and over 200 million copies sold, the old clunky cassette players have been ironically decommissioned on the 9th anniversary of the iPod’s launch.
Sony’s reasoning behind the end of its hugely popular product was the lack of consumer interest, maybe that’s because no one knew they still existed. However, it is not surprising that with the age of the iPod upon us they have finally cut their ties to the past.
