Sony Mobile Communications Rises from the Ashes of Sony Ericsson

We heard last year that Sony wanted to buyout Ericsson's portion of their mobile phone venture. This was seen to be a good thing for Ericsson because the firm was losing money in many parts of its business and needed funds. Sony wanted to bring its mobile phones in house along with all of its other electronic devices.

Regulators have now signed off on the deal, and it is apparently now complete. Sony Ericsson is out and the new company is called Sony Mobile Communications. I wonder when we'll see the first smartphone wearing the Sony name alone. Sony is expected to continue focusing mostly on Android for its smartphones.

I'm sure we can expect to see some smartphones running Windows Phone come from Sony as well. It will be interesting to see what Sony can do, its share the smartphone market hasn't been that great in the last year or so.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
