The Walkman is officially dead.

After more than 30 years on the market, Sony has decided to end production and sales of their Walkman portable cassette players.

The final batch was produced in Japan back in April of this year and as soon as they're sold, there will officially be no more.

Since 1979, over 200 million Walkman cassette players have been sold.

Sony does say however, that they will continue to make and sell their CD and MiniDisc-based Walkmans.

Sure, we all love our tiny pocket-sized iPods, but the end of the Walkman is an end of an era!!

What do U think? Are U sad about the end of the Walkman??
