The Reg thinks the Sony Music-Intel alliance is a big deal.
"The deal the two firms announced will see the two co-operate to bring Sony's content to Intel-based PDAs and cellphones. The pair will create applications that run on Intel's hardware yet leverages Sony's content".
"That processor is due mid-2004, and has been described by its maker as enabling an "Xbox in a phone" experience".
Umm. I don't think this is such a big deal - unless you're Motorola. But they've
got bigger problems. This is just a simple tactic in line with Sony's larger strategy. And possibly an example of Sony Music trying to find it's place within that strategy.
And I take the hype about the chip with a big grain of salt.
