HOLLYWOOD, March 31 (UPI) -- Sony Corp. of Japan plans to make its top 500 movies available digitally in the next year, the BBC said Thursday.

The movies will be put onto flash memory for cell phones over the next 12 months, the company said.

"We want to set business models, pricing models, distribution models like (Apple chief Steve) Jobs did for music, but for the film industry," said Michael Arrieta, senior vice president of Sony Pictures.

Sony also plans to develop its digital download services for films, he said.
