LocationFree box delay
Sony will be delaying the launch of its LocationFree TV boxes, writes the Associated Press. The company claims it needs more tests to adapt its remote control to third-party devices. The boxes are meant to be range extenders for Sony's LocationFree base stations, units that transmit TV output to devices with Internet access. The Japanese release date has been pushed from October 27th to November 17th, while US shipments should arrive at an undefined point in October. Base station deliveries should remain unaffected.
