Sony Goes Ahead With Movies For Cellphones

Thank you Sony. It's about time somebody came out with movies made for your mobile. I mean, let's face it, with the Video iPod and multimedia phones popping up everywhere, it should definitely be easier to get content for these devices. So Sony Pictures has decided to start introducing movies on 128 MB MMC cards. If you have a cellphone that plays multimedia files and has a card slot, you're in. And I'm shocked, shocked I say, that the company is being so kind about not putting all this on Memory Sticks! This is truly a step forward. Way to play nice Sony! Movies slated for first release include Stuart Little, Ghostbusters, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, and Spiderman 2. One caveat: Don't try to play these flicks on a larger screen because although they should look grand on your small cellphone display, the quality won't hold up on something larger. No word on pricing just yet and the DRM will probably infect every phone in the world and take out the entire Eastern Seaboard, but we can always dream of a world without hate. Anyway, thanks for taking the lead, Sony.
