RealNetworks On Sony Devices: Following

RealNetworks On Sony Devices: Following the earlier announcement that users will soon have the ability to transfer music from Pressplay to Sony’s Net MD Walkman recorders, RealNetworks has announced a “Sony Music Device Plug-in” for its RealOne player. The plug-in enables consumers to “easily transfer their digital music to Sony audio devices such as Net MD Walkman, Network Walkman and VAIO personal computers.”

This announcement comes a month after Sony and RealNetworks signed an agreement to collaborate on consumer electronics devices. The alliance builds on previous deals between the two companies, including an agreement by Sony to support RealNetworks’ digital video technology in the PlayStation 2 game console that Sony is positioning as a digital entertainment hub.
