Sony, Google Sign Distribution Deal

Sep 04, 2009

Sony's PC division has signed a distribution deal with Google to include Google's Chrome browser on all new Sony Vaio computers. Chrome has struggled to make a dent in Microsoft's dominance in the web browser market, as its 30 million users constitute only 2% of market share, compared to Internet Explorer's 68%. This could be the start of a new wave of distribution deals between hardware manufacturers and software companies that want to take a bite out of Microsoft's market share.
