Sony Showcases Products For Holidays 2011

Sony Showcases Products For Holidays 2011

As expected, we saw the company's latest range of computers, MP3 players, 3D TVs, headphones, tablets, and home entertainment products.

But one of the main things that stood out was Sony's showing of Qriocity - the company's brand for digital distribution of streaming music, movies, and other forms of media. Not to be confused with the digital download services already offered on the PS3, Qriocity is something that is spread across multiple Sony Electronics devices - like Internet connected TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and more.

For just $4 a month, users can stream unlimited amounts of music, making it the cheapest premium music streaming service on the market, though there are some restrictions.

The more feature-rich monthly service is on par with other services like Best Buy's streaming platform, but because it runs across all sorts of Sony devices, including Vaio computers, it's easier to access the music from the cloud. Of course, for local storage, users can always log onto Qriocity from any PC and play their music from Qriocity's Web-based software.

Qriocity is also making inroads in the digital video streaming segment. Because of Sony's existing partnerships, there are thousands of movies available on a pay-per-view basis, which means they're available 28 days before Netflix but users have to pay for each one.

And the other big area we saw on display was Sony's Vaio laptop line, headlined of course by the Z Series, which we reported on from another Sony NYC event earlier this month .

The new Vaio Z series has an AMD Radeon 6630M GPU and an amazing 256 GB of SSD storage, making it a blazing fast yet high-performing device.

Sony of course has many more products in the pipeline before the holidays, but we were unsuccessful in getting anyone to spill any of those beans. For now, the company is pretty happy with the new products it has already introduced in 2011.
