Good strategy. Be like xbox live on wp but ps on other phones. Some way it is like a copy of MS's idea. Anyway, be nice to have it all in one phone.

i hope with ICS, we see a bluetooth (or even cabled) game pad made by sony for android. ps suite is great, but much, much better with a true dual shock experience.

hopefully sony could include support for ps3 controller because it uses bluetooth.

even if sony doesnt directly support it, the hack community is sure to set it up. that would be awesome!

Cybshot was great. It was the most touted thing back then, which had the beast camera. They should have kept that branding. Would have distinguished them in the phone market and maybe improve their financial.

I agree. They wonderfully touted "beats" audio really has nothing new to offer. Infact i believe my V-moda set sounds even better than the beats. as far as integrated beats goes on phones its also really not that good.

Sony should make it exclusive to their products. its gonna be a main differentiating factor. giving out license for it will only provide short term profits.
