Financial terms were not disclosed.
Sony VAIO MicroTowers and Notebooks in the U.S. and Canada will display the AOL icon on the computer's main screens, allowing users to access pre-installed AOL software.
This summer AOL and IBM also sealed a multi-year marketing agreement under which AOL's Interactive Service software will be featured via a desktop icon on IBM consumer Aptiva and ThinkPad computers.
"It's increasingly apparent that as mass market consumers are buying computers, one of their primary reasons for doing so is so that they can go online," said Jan Brandt, President of Marketing for America Online, Inc. "This new agreement makes it easier for Sony customers in both the U.S. and Canada to get online quickly and easily, taking advantage of the powerful resources and tools found only on AOL."
