HTC to make devices powered by Sony PlayStation Mobile platform!

Sony has just announced that they are renaming Sony PlayStation Suite as Sony PlayStation Mobile and the technology is being licensed to third party manufacturers.

HTC is the first company announced by Sony as their partner in this initiative. This means that HTC would now be able to sell devices labeled as Sony PlayStation Mobile certified!

This is an incredible development from Sony as they are lending their PlayStation branding to rival companies for the first time. This is similar to how Motorola once sold a device loaded with Apple iTunes app. that initiative did not work well for both Apple and Motorola.

HTC has not yet announced when they would launch their first Sony PSM certified hardware in the market.
