CTIA: Sony Ericsson Has No Plans To Launch Bravia Handset In US

Sony Ericsson didn’t have much luck with mobile phones until it brought out Walkman phones, and followed that with another hit with the Cybershot phones. So it’s not really a surprise that the company is following the same route with TV phones, with a range of Bravia-branded mobile TV handsets. The Bravia handsets are available in Japan, but according to PC Magazine Sony Ericsson is “holding off from developing US TV phones for now, with execs saying that they haven’t seen sufficient consumer demand yet”. Instead Sony Ericsson is at CTIA showing a range of music and camera phones, and a major software upgrade that improves music syncing with PCs, and adds video syncing. The company is also working on support for Microsoft protected music, such as is sold by Napters and Yahoo music.
