The Sony Walkman DBP-FX810 and D-VE7000S look like UMPCs, but don't be fooled: they're DVD players, pure and simple. The D-VE7000S has a 7-inch screen, and plugs into a docking station with speakers. The DBP-FX810 has an 8-inch screen and a folding form factor.

But Sony, hello? So what if they have the Walkman nameplate on them—these are DVD players, with no hard disk inside, no Blu-ray capability, nothing new here. The world has moved on. Adapt or die.
