Sony reportedly exploring development of iPhone competitor

Sun, Jun 28, 2009


After losing the MP3 player battle before it seemingly even began, Sony is reportedly trying to fuse its PSP and Sony Erickson mobile phone into a product that can compete with the iPhone.

Reuters reports:

Sony Corp is considering developing a cellphone-game gear hybrid in a bid to better compete with Apple Inc’s highly popular iPod and iPhone, the Nikkei business daily said on Saturday.

… Sony plans to set up a project team as early as July to develop a new product that combines functions of its portable game player and Sony Ericsson’s mobile phones, the Nikkei said.

Hmm, setting up a project team this late in game? The phrase ‘too little too late’ comes to mind.
