Sony To Relaunch Connect Music Service; Will Work Cohesively

Cohesive is the keyword these days at the new, new Sony. It will relaunch its failed online music service, Sony Connect. Both the development of the Connect software and the Walkman hardware will be under the same management and the company will be focussing all its digital music efforts in one direction.

No more details yet, but Sony has indicated video downloads in the past…

WSJ: WSJ has the story on the Sony Connect disaster..fascinating read about the dysfunctional family.

Sony is pushing hard to roll out a fully revamped version of the Connect service, complete with jukebox software, a retooled Walkman and a video-download service in the fall. Connect is also working with the videogame and cellphone groups, in a stab at true cross-company cooperation.

I would think they would integrate it with Sony PSP and not try and flog the dead Walkman horse
