No more Walkman, Walkman is dead - today!

As of today, 15th of April 2015 I must give you the sad information that the legendary Walkman brand and the iconic "W" died.

 

Sony started it's beta program for the upcoming music app.

 

There are these two reasons:

 

The walkman brand is moved to the Walkman division and they have the trademark rights.

Many people out there just don't know what a Walkman is and that Walkman is a music app ...

Re: No more Walkman, Walkman is dead - today!

A Walkman was a name given to a cassett player that was portable and was given the name by Sony - So the name is outdated and was something I had before half the members on here if not more were even born or thought of

From "Walkman" to "Music"? Really?

I don't even know what to say to express my disappointment with this update. I'm not even lying nor am I exaggerating, but Walkman was without a doubt one of the top 3 reasons that made me come back to using a Sony phone.

Did Sony loose the trademark or something? Why would they do this? What exactly was the point? Pretty sure it's something not that big. This app and it's name had a strong signature on this phone, good job for taking that away.

Re: From "Walkman" to "Music"? Really?

I get it, but as a person who loved Walkman as a kid, the name and logo is iconic. Having it in my phone was just a symbol of quality, even though it didn't necessarily have as real Walkman like you said. But then again, what's point of them changing it?

I know I'm complaining for no reason, but it meant a lot for me. I hope Sony understands where I'm coming from.

why walkman to music

Sony phones are differentiated from all other manufacturers in the sense that they have the software different.. Like walkman, album, but they are making all things common.. Why you changed the walkman name to music ....is feels cheap now...no premium feel now.....you should have changed all the things in walkman... But not its name which reflects sony

Re: why walkman to music

You could suggest that to Sony directly
