Sony OKs Music For All-In-One Phones

Deal provides ringtones for new "hiptop" devices.

Sony Music Entertainment has inked a deal with Danger Inc. to make its master ringtones compatible with Danger's hiptop phones.

The hiptop is a wireless all-in-one device that combines a mobile phone with a Web browser, an embedded email account, instant messaging, a personal organizer and games. Users can preview and download ringtones wirelessly to their devices.

T-Mobile's version of the hiptop, the T-Mobile Sidekick, is the first hiptop device that will feature Sony master ringtones. Other mobile-phone carriers are expected to feature Sony master ringtones on their hiptop devices in the near future.
