WILL THE REAL WEBTV BOX MAKER PLEASE STEP FORWARD?

By CBR Staff Writer

We didn’t think it sounded right when Microsoft Corp told us earlier this week that Samsung Electronics Co was manufacturing set-top boxes for its WebTV Networks service, and our suspicions proved correct (CI No 3,452). Sure they are Samsung-branded boxes – available from this week – but they are built by a third party. But so far nobody at Microsoft or Samsung has been able to come up with a name. So, as a help, here’s three (the only possible three) to choose from: Sony Electronics Inc, Philips Consumer Electronics Co and Mitsubishi Consumer Electronics America. Please let us know which one it is guys, we’re dying to know.
