Sony Launches Vending Machines

San Diego - Sony Electronics will bring its chairman Howard Stringer's "Sony United" directive to airports and shopping malls as it tests a new Sony vending kiosk to sell products from many of the company's disparate operations.

The vending kiosks, which will be maintained and operated by Zoom Systems, will showcase and sell multiple formats of Sony recordable media, batteries, headphones, Walkman MP3 players and CD players, Sony digital cameras, Sony Pictures DVD and UMD videos, Sony music CDs, Vaio PC accessories and PlayStation games and PSP players.

Sony is calling the new retailing approach "Sony Access," and will use it to both sell Sony goods and promote its brand name and products, said Joe Stinziano, Sony Electronics media and applications solutions division senior VP.
