Sony Ericsson bring the battle to MS with PSN on devices


Last week at MWC Windows Phone 7 Series was announced, and with that came some big news from Sony Ericsson’s CEO. The news of WP7S and its great integration with Xbox live didn’t sit to well with Howard Stringer CEO of Sony Ericsson. In a recent interview he made his intentions clear with the announcement that they would be working on Playstation Network integrate with their devices.

“PSN is no secret weapon. Leveraging PSN we are building a new network service that will connect many more network enabled product including Sony Bravias, Viaos and Blu-ray players. To satisfy the demand for more open systems and to broaden the array of network devices connected to our network services we are committed to extending that service to Sony Ericsson mobile phones.

As part of these initiatives we are also exploring consistent user interfaces across Sony Ericsson products to ensure a seamless and integrated experience for the consumer.”


This news seems a little rushed, and it is most likely was pressured by Microsoft’s announcement of their new OS. Lets see what can come out of this, because this sort of competition can only end up being for the good. For Many Playstation 3 owners that have been awaiting a PSP phone, this could be what they have been waiting for.
