Sony Corp. has licensed Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd to manufacture and sell its Memory Stick media. Samsung is scheduled to begin in-house manufacturing and sales of Memory Stick media during this quarter (Q3). This agreement is an expansion of an earlier arrangement in 2001, where Sony worked with Samsung to add Memory Stick compatibility to a range of Samsung products including DVD players, mobile phones, PCs, and TV receivers.

Upon production, Samsung will commence bundling of Memory Stick media with compatible products as well as separate media sales under the Samsung brand. In addition to the product lines agreed on with the 2001 pact, Memory Stick will be employed in Samsung's new product categories.

Memory Stick has evolved from a storage media for still images and computer data into a broad networking media for recording diverse content, including copyrighted material, and sharing it among the widest possible variety of products.
