Sony Ericsson Announces Plans For Music Service, Again; More Games

A bit puzzling, since Sony (NYSE: SNE) Ericsson (NSDQ: ERIC) announced the exact same plans in November last year as well…this time it says it has deals with three labels, and Vivendi’s (EPA: VIV) Universal Music Group seems to have dropped out from the earlier announced list. It has also struck deals with Hungama, from India, and the Orchard, with Latin America and Asian music.

Sony Ericsson also announced that 250 mobile games will be available as part of the upgraded PlayNow service, through existing deals with EA, Gameloft (EPA: GFT), THQ (NSDQ: THQI) and Glu (NSDQ: GLUU) Mobile.
