Handango Gains Access to Sony Ericsson Customers

Smartphone software retailer Handango Inc. revealed Thursday that users of Sony Ericsson mobile telephones will be able to purchase Handango applications direct from their XPERIA and UIQ devices. The financial impact of the distribution partnership was not disclosed. Headquartered in Hurst, Texas, Handango's mobile offerings include games, music and imaging and productivity applications. Handango said Sony Ericsson UIQ customers will be able to purchase Handango software via Handango's InHand mobile client later in the year. For UIQ phones already in the market, customers will be able to use their built-in Web browsers to access Handango's online store by as early as July 25.
