Sony kills the Clie dead

Peter Rojas
Sony Clie TJ37

The rumors that Sony is working on at least one new Clie handheld could still technically be true, but if it's going to happen they'll have to do it soon because they've just announced that they're going to completely kill off the Clie in July (they already pulled out of the US market last year). We're guessing they've decided to focus their energies on the PlayStation Portable, Sony Ericsson smartphones, and coming up with a worthy competitor for the iPod. Anyway, Sony'll keep providing parts and repair services for at least another six years or so, but PalmSource has officially lost yet another licensee for the Palm operating system.
