Sony NWZ-S639FBMC2: Where Is This Model From?

Good day, to you.

I purchased a Sony NWZ-S369BLK via a reputable online merchant. In turn, I received a player that's packaged as a "NWZ-S639F."

Oddly, on the package exterior, an overlayed sticker has "NWZS639FBMC2."

There's very limited info on the internet regarding this model, and none of it states if this a "knock-off" or refurbished item. Foremost, I could not find out what market (Country) it was produced for.

I would welcome a reply from anyone with experience, or knowledge, with this model, as I'm seriously considering return it, and thanks in advance.

My question is...

do you like it for that price you paid, if yes, then keep it. If not then you know what to do. I google for the info and what comes up is very strange. Here is what I think happen; This is a fake SONY (not knockoff). When Sony found out about it, everything has to stop. What do you think.

Here's What I Think...

This is an odd model description, isn't it? I've put this info "out there," and the overall responses have been similar. Even Sony, couldn't explain the model number. I'll wait for additional feedback on this matter, and thanks for yours.

It's legitimate

I still have a NOS factory-sealed S639FB that I purchased cheap from a local Best Buy when they were blowing out the remaining old Walkman backstock. It too has the same FBMC2 nomenclature on a UPC sticker stuck over the original UPC printed on the cardboard packaging within the plastic blister packing.
