Sony is planning on connecting Playstation 2 buyer to the new consoles Internet features by way of digital cell phone connection. The cell phone solution is Sony's plan to get owner of the new console connected to the machine's online features and sales sites until Sony's planned high-speed cable network becomes available sometime in 2001. The use of digital mobile phones for the Internet connection will allow the Playstation 2 to get online with out using a modem. "The service can be started immediately after sales begin of special software and a cable to connect a portable phone with PlayStation2," said Sony Computer Entertainment President Ken Kutaragi.
