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?

Indeed. I have a 32 meg iPaq and my normal usage is MP3 listening while reading web pages. From a hard reset my iPaq has 31.25 MB total main memory with 11.55 MB in use for storage and 7.09 MB free for storage, with 2.77 MB in use by prgrams and 9.84MB free. The only way I could run mozilla would be to install it on a compact flash card or on my Microdrive, which is where I have the Jeode JVM and a few other bits of software.

It is feasible but not for an out of the box iPaq I guess. More Moore's law I guess, given they reckon it will be another 12 months before anything is released.
