Friday, March 14, 2003 - Clash of the Titans - Clash of the Titans "Sony, Finland's Nokia Corp. and Microsoft Corp., of Redmond, Wash., are beginning to vie for control of the market for "gateway" devices like the P800 -- machines through which consumers exchange and play digital content. At the CeBIT technology fair in Hanover, Germany, this week, Sony, Nokia and Microsoft are showing game consoles, hand-held computers, mobile phones and a host of other devices all capable of connecting to the Internet, playing games, video and music.
All three companies are trying to capture a broad swath of the home-entertainment market -- and steer the future development of consumer technology in a direction that plays to their own strengths and their rivals' weaknesses."
