Sony is rumoured to be working on its own cloud service for its Xperia mobile devices after it was revealed that it filed for a "MyXperia" trademark recently.

The trademark was registered on the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market and is said to be for the "upload, storage, retrieval, download, transmission and delivery of digital content and media."

According to the filing, trademark 011197332 says that these functions apply to "mobile phones, smart phones, digital or electronic tablets, PDAs and/or portable and handheld digital electronic devices."

This rumour just may be true, especially considering that Sony has a website called MyXperia.com, which when accessed forwards users to the subdomain MyXperia.Sony.com.

The move may just help Sony compete with Apple iCloud and Google Drive.

Sony Mobile used to rely on a partnership with Box.net to bring cloud storage to Xperia smartphone buyers.
