Sony NW-A1200 music player

Today you might have read this on Gizmodo:
Check out the Sony A series, limited edition NW-A1000. A 6GB player in jet black, it’s small, smooth and retro looking [...]
Except the 6GB NW-A1000 isn't limited edition and isn't new. The 8GB NW-A1200 is. The writer was confused when confronted with this sentence in the source article:
The A series is the most anticipated line of MP3 players from Sony. Sony has launched a limited edition of the NW-A1000 6 GB MP3 player the A1200/B which comes in Jet black color with a 8 GB Hard drive.
Shockingly and mindbogglingly, the Gizmodo post even includes a link to that story, and the link is labeled "Sony A series NW-A1200/B with 8 GB storage". And yet that's not what they wrote about.
