AOLTW Announces Sony Pact

Tuesday November 13th, 2001

Normally we wouldn't mention this, except there was a key quote that we thought should be highlighted in the press release:

* The joint development of an Internet browser designed for optimal performance, a consistent experience, and greater convenience on networked consumer electronic devices. Both companies envision not only employing the browser in future Sony products but also making it available to other consumer electronics manufacturers.
Could we soon see Mozilla on Sony devices like the Playstation or other pc based devices?

Could it just be they are thinking of Opera? See artical <…,00.html?chkpt=zdhpnews01> and here is a little paste from the page about Opera 6.

\" Although Netscape\'s small browser efforts have stumbled with repeated delays, and Microsoft\'s have met with resistance from operating system competitors, Opera has been moving aggressively to establish itself as the browser vender of choice for small devices.

This summer, the U.K.-based mobile software unit of Psion selected Opera as the browser for its handsets. That agreement came shortly after Opera took the wraps off its deal to supply IBM with small browsers. Before that, Opera released a browser for Symbian\'s EPOC operating system for next-generation cell phones and other mobile Internet access devices. \"
