PlayStation 3 might be delayed?

ps3_right

"Sony Corp., which slashed its profit forecast yesterday, said it may not reach this year's shipment target for the PlayStation 3 game console because of a parts shortage in the Blu-ray high-definition disc drive.
Sony plans to ship two million PlayStation 3 players this year to the U.S. and Japan, and six million worldwide by March. The Tokyo-based company said yesterday annual profit would fall 35 percent to its lowest in five years on price cuts of the console in Japan and a recall of 9.6 million computer batteries".
"The honest answer is it's more of a target'' for PlayStation 3 shipments, Jack Tretton, co-chairman of Sony Computer Entertainment America, said yesterday in an interview. "Clearly we've had production issues.''

Hmm, Sony seems like they're having troubles these days with the PS3 and Location Free.

Good news Palm OS users! It seems like Sling is planning to release the Slingplayer client for Palm OS according to their packaging. I was also surprised and glad to see support or future release of Symbian. Everyone is still waiting for an official release for the Mac. Hey Sony, now I'm expecting updates from you guys .

Finally!



I was just checking up on the cingular website and found that finally, the Sony Ericsson W810i has been released. I really want the SE W900 or the W850, but since they are like $300~$500 on ebay unlocked, I can't afford them yet. I'm gonna have to just wait 'til the prices are reduced. I was surprised to see that the W810 is not a highly priced as I saw on Ebay, which was a little over $300. It's retailed for $199 but with a 2yr agreement, you get -$50 online discount and -$50 rebate. So you can get it for $100. Hmm, I just may upgrade to this phone.
