Sony to support MP3 music files

Sony said today that is working to add native MP3 support to its portable music players. “The shift from reliance on its proprietary Atrac format will begin with flash memory-based players, but plans are still being finalized on how and when products will add MP3 support,” reports CNET “Sony is revisiting its MP3 strategy at a time when competition in the digital music market is heating up–and threatening to leave the company behind. The surprise move could portend a major strategy reversal for the consumer electronics giant, with important ramifications for the fledgling online music market.”
