Sony is always coming up with new and innovative ideas on thier products. This seems to be yet another intelligent product brought to the market. The walkman with a digital TV will sell like wildfire if brought to the public. I think for online publicity and PR, they should try using a tool which I use for building PR of my company's softwares. Its called MyPRGenie ( I use it regularly and am a big fan.
