Rumor: Sony Will Try To Steal The Show From Apple With A Music Service

We know that Apple's holding a music-related event tomorrow, but now we're reading that Sony will try to steal the show from it. According to the Financial Times, Sony will be announcing a music service of its own:

Sources in the media industry told the Financial Times that Sony would use its PlayStation games consoles as the starting point for a new service that users will be able to use across a range of other internet-connected devices. That could include Walkman music players, Vaio computers, Bravia TVs, Blu-ray players and Sony Ericsson mobile phones.


Guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens. [FT]



In a bold move, Sony's announced a new revolutionary service dubbed Roll-On earlier today, in a daring attempt to regain its dominance in the home and portable audio world. Stage one of a mysterious three-tier plan involves dropping upgraded Rolly robotic digital audio players from the air, which Sony hopes will spark interest.
