Sony Corp. announced Friday that its first hand-held computer will carry the company's own microprocessor, suggesting dissatisfaction with current chips on the market.

Sony's new CLIE personal digital assistant, due to ship in September, will also mark the company's entry into wireless communication.

The new line will be optimized for audio files and video -- commercial movies as well as personal clips for people to share -- while draining as little battery power as possible, said Masanobu Yoshida, president of the company's handheld computing company.

Current Sony CLIEs have Intel microprocessors.

Sony promises smoother video and longer battery life in the new models -- 16 hr for continuous playback of music or 5 hours for video. Performance is to double with an attachable battery pack.

The Japanese consumer electronics giant also plans to make its own chip for its next-generation PlayStation game console. (AP)
