Nearly Named: Sony Stowaway

Although the Walkman brand may not have the same loftiness as it did back in the '80s and '90s, the name is still one of, if not the, greatest created for a consumer electronics device. Not many people know that when the Walkman was first released in the U.S. and the U.K. it wasn't called the Walkman: it was named the SoundAbout and the Stowaway, respectively.
