"Working with a range of the industry's preferred solutions including RealNetworks for multimedia delivery, Sony Ericsson is helping to usher in new era of mobile multimedia content services - enabling delivery of compelling video and audio services directly to consumers' phones."

"Sony Ericsson has been very successful in the feature-rich mobile phone market in Europe. By adding RealNetworks technologies to those devices both companies will further the vision of ensuring consumers have the best multimedia experiences possible," said Ian Freed, vice president, Mobile Products and Services, RealNetworks, Inc.

Sony Ericsson will leverage the flexibility of RealNetworks Helix Community, and the Helix DNA(tm) Client to efficiently bring RealPlayer-enabled mobile handsets to market. The Helix Community is a collaborative effort among RealNetworks, independent developers, and leading companies to extend the Helix DNA platform, the first commercial-grade, multi-format platform for digital media creation, delivery and playback.
