You know who knows everything? Sony prepping new line of handhelds including psp phone??? What´s going on!!! ok ok People familiar with the matter. In particular, they know everything when “the matter” happens to be Sony’s handheld strategy for 2010. According to the WSJ, the device is apparently part of a larger push by Sony to create an iTunes-like Utopian ecosystem of products this year that connect to Sony Online Service, an ecosystem that would also include a hybrid portable of some sort that “blurs distinctions among a netbook, an e-reader and a PlayStation Portable.” Details aren’t offered on this particular monster — but turning our attention back to the phone for a second, it’s claimed that Sony’s working with it in conjunction with the folks at Sony Ericsson under the direction of Kunimasa Suzuki, an exec largely responsible for the Vaio line who’s also involved with the PlayStation team. Of course, SE’s already taken some baby steps toward corporate harmony by bundling Remote Play support with the Aino, but everyone knows that PSP compatibility is the panacea; Microsoft finally buckled on the Zunephone thing with the introduction of Windows Phone 7 Series, and there’s no reason why Sony shouldn’t follow suit. read first in

“Threatened by Apple Inc.’s growing stable of portable devices, Sony Corp. is developing a new lineup of handheld products, including a smart phone capable of downloading and playing videogames, according to people familiar with the matter.”
“The Japanese electronics giant also is developing a portable device that shares characteristics of netbooks, electronic-book readers and handheld-game machines. The device is designed to compete against multifunction products such as Apple’s coming iPad tablet, these people said.”
“Both the new smart phone and the multifunction device are expected to work with Sony’s new online media platform, due to launch later this month in …”

“Many of you know that the biggest event in consumer electronics, CES, is coming next month during January 7th to the 10th. It’s a very exciting time for gadget bloggers because large electronics companies debut new products for the year. Sony begins their preparations many months before CES, and their booth usually has their latest products, dozens of televisions, interactive product displays, and so much more. Another exciting aspect is the people who are in the booths – it’s not uncommon to be amongst celebrities and high ranking officials of various companies. For a mild mannered Sony blogger such as myself it is an overwhelming prospect to visit CES, as there is so many people to meet, and so much to cover for our readers out there.”
“Sony put pictures on flickr (click to enlarge) to remind us that they will have quite the showing for CES 2010; below, you can see the large number of products waiting to be shipped to Vegas…”
“Here is where things come together, courtesy of a great story by geek.com, entitled “Early images of Sony’s CES booth.” (more pictures there) Apparently their website was allowed to take pictures of the booth-building process, and said that “..the booth (and I use that term loosely, it’s probably about half an acre) is positioned in a sweet spot at the rear corner of one of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s massive halls.” They have quite a few pictures of the Sony CES booth itself being constructed; It definitely puts a smile on my face to see this, as it looks really crazy. I can tell the lighting is going to be really high impact, and rich with color – probably a massive pain to take pictures of. Thankfully I will have a A900 this round.”

“Hey guys and girls, looks like Japan and Europe get to update their Walkman X firmware which is said to improve online browsing (is anyone surfing the net on your X?):
This firmware update improves the following performance:
Let’s hope we get the same treatment in the US soon, as I understand it is a holiday season and Sony software engineers just need to tweak the installer to work on the US models. When I tried using the firmware upgrade from a European website, it does not recognize my Walkman model (NWZ-X1051/1061) as it is intended for NWZ-X1050/1060 models (even though the software agreement lists all the US legal language and the installer is for X1000 series).
Anyways, the good news is Content Transfer software is at version 1.3 now and you can get it here and install it without any problems on your English speaking VAIOs, Lenovos, Dells and whatever else you are using.
Content Transfer software is an easy way to get audio, video and photos, as well as podcasts on your Walkman.”

“Another bombshell to drop out of Sony’s recent Investor/Analyst Meeting was the revelation of an upcoming online store called the “Sony Online Service.” While the name is tentative, the features Sony are planning for it aren’t and we should expect it sometime in 2010. But what does “Sony Online Service” really mean? Is it just the infrastructure of the Playstation Network with a new name and more multimedia? Hardly. This isn’t just another competitor to iTunes – its far beyond that.
The upcoming Sony Online Service will be a personal and premium digital ecosystem. In the first slide, you can clearly see that Sony will begin this process by enabling network connectivity with all of its digital imaging products throughout 2010 and beyond, enabling devices to upload, store and share their content online. This personal content (created by you) will coincide with the vast majority of Sony’s entertainment offerings, including music, movies, games, and books. Sony will also embrace many 3rd party content providers to bolster their initial offering – something they have proven themselves capable of with their current partners in the Playstation Store and streaming partners in their latest networked Blu-ray product.
However, one of the main focus points will be you.
“One of the things we really need to get into is the whole concept of user-driven content,” EVP Kazuo Hirai of Sony said in an interview.”
“There already are a lot of services out there but we want to try to bring something that is uniquely Sony to the experience.”
“It doesn’t stop there though – Sony also plans to offer streaming media, applications (including 3rd party), services (such as health/fitness, banking, etc), and shopping (such as the ability to buy products at SonyStyle). The great thing is that many Sony devices will be able to view the service, including VAIO computers, Blu-ray players, BRAVIA Televisions, and of course the PS3 and PSP. This will ensure that Sony products have access to the total entertainment experience.”
The Sony Online Service will leverage the Playstation Network infrastructure, meaning they will co-exist (at least initially). Only one user ID will be necessary to access the service. This is all a part of the “UX Platform,” meaning a common user experience across all products. This means that the appearance of the store should be the essentially the same no matter what device you view it on, whether it be through a Playstation product or on your BRAVIA, VAIO, or Reader. Sony has also noted in the slide above that there will be new mobile products that will be able to access the service.”
“The Sony Online Service will be part of a larger Cloud service, as demonstrated above. We’re still a little unsure of this slide, but essentially I believe Sony will make”
