The company won't be launching any new Clié PDAs in Japan although it will continue to offer service and support for its users, said Aki Shimazu, a spokeswoman for Sony in Tokyo.
"What we are doing here is exactly the same as what we did before (in overseas markets)," she said."There won't be any new Clié PDAs but we are not necessarily exiting the PDA business."
Sony is considering further products built in collaboration with other group companies including telecommunication-orientated products with Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB and computer gaming-orientated devices with Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and its recently launched PSP (PlayStation Portable), she said.However, at present no such firm plans for products have been decided.
"It's a chance for us to recharge our batteries, to sit down and consider the business," said Shimazu.

Akira Shimazu, ..., 29 May 2012 [cached]
Akira Shimazu, Sony's senior general manager in charge of 3D projects, believes 2010 is the year that the immersive viewing experience will finally come of age. "In terms of technology, it was impossible for television sets and video players at consumers' houses to play back 3D content appropriately," he told AFP. But that has changed with a new high-speed LCD panel that allows 3D with full high definition, he says, and Blu-ray discs can store full-length HD-quality movies in 3D. The quality of the content has also vastly improved with processors able to adjust 3D images digitally in post-production, tools that were not available in the past when most movies were made on film. "Recently I saw a couple of very early 3D films created by Columbia Pictures in the 1950s," Shimazu said.
"Live broadcast of sport is one of the most promising genres of 3D content," Shimazu said. back
