Sony Says No More Clie Handhelds
Eight months after exiting the US and European PDA markets, a Sony representative has confirmed there will be no new forthcoming Clie models in Japan. The company has effectively ended all Clie product development worldwide.
In June 2004, Sony stated they would not be releasing any new Clie Handhelds products in the coming fall in the US and that product development and sales would continue in Japan only.
A spokesperson for Sony in Tokyo now says that, The company won't be launching any new Clie PDAs in Japan although it will continue to offer service and support for its users. "What we are doing here is exactly the same as what we did before [in overseas markets]," she says. "There won't be any new Clie PDAs but we are not necessarily exiting the PDA business." As stated in a report on PC World.
Sony has been a Palm OS licensee since 1999. The Clie personal entertainment organizer product line, has brought to market some of the most innovative Palm Powered products.
