Just a few short weeks ago, we were all surprised to see that Apple discontinued its game-changing iPod Classic. Gone but never to be forgotten, it is hard to avoid feelings of sadness regarding its disappearance from store shelves and retail shopping carts. A slice of Americana has gone the way of memory.

Or has it? You won't believe the iPod's replacement. A blast from the past got a brand new makeover and it's turning lots of heads.

Sony just announced a new Walkman at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, but it's no tape player.

The Walkman ZX2 is a sleek music player running Android. This thing looks pretty cool but is known on the show floor as much for its looks and functions as its price tag: $1,119.99.
