Sony Corp. (SNE) will slash the price of its PSPgo portable game player ahead of the holiday period.
The company will cut the price of the PSPgo to $199 from $249 in the United States and to 16,800 yen ($207) from 26,800 yen in Japan, Reuters said.
Microsoft unveiled on Monday its initial lineup of smartphones that will use the mobile OS. Analysts seem impressed, but they warn that the software giant has a huge task ahead to lure consumers away from Apple iPhones and Google Android-powered handsets.
Remember when Sony was the king of the consumer electronics hill, and the Walkman was the iconic product? Well, the Japanese giant wants its crown back, and it's bringing the fight to Apple with new products intended to go head to head with the iPod, iPhone, iTunes and iPad.
