International: AOL Time Warner, Sony sign pact

Sony Corp signed a pact with AOL Time Warner Inc and Nokia Corp that will help the industry leaders overcome hurdles that are slowing the acceptance of high-speed media and communication services.

AOL Time Warner and Sony will team up to develop gateway technologies, which tie together different devices, and an Internet browser compatible with Sony’s consumer electronic devices.

Sony’s deal with No. 1 mobile phone-maker Nokia aims to develop software and service platforms that will also allow mobile handsets and other electronics devices to connect and easily share content.

The two companies will also work together to create a set of open standards for inter-operability between mobile devices, Ando said.

The deals with Sony, the No. 2 largest supplier of high-speed access in Japan, will help knock down barriers for the long-awaited convergence of rich media content delivered via high-speed cable lines and mobile telephones.

The deal will create a platform to allow consumers use their devices and different services.
