What will happen now to owners of Sony Ericsson smartphones,released last year?,, who will service their warranty? Sony or Ericsson?... why did they split up, their market is starting to boom last quarter of 2011..

Stop the "make believe" and "make yourself heard" once more!!! Hope the legendary 3 stripes come up with state of the art technology in today's mobile phones again!!!

Sony, 30 Oct 2011amoled or led or slcd these r the creation of sony and samsung 5... moreeither samsung or sony invented the oled. If you want a history we need to go back to 50's french university...but that doesn't hardly matter.

Point is that samsung is a only company at the moment that can mass manufacture oled dispays and OWNs 90% of share in oled market.

sony ponieered oled ahead of samsung, but they dropped it, because profit/investment-wise issue. So, sony has almost nothing in oled market. they aren't even the second best...

  • tsk tsk tsk

i don't think it's bad, and as far as i know, sony is doing this to salvage the sony ericsson's losing market share.

btw, just imagine it. The technologies sony will be integrating to their devices are from their sony products. About having their own OS, they probably will be sticking to android for now,.

Ericsson will be very fool if they won't start making their own phones like they did for so many years before they shook hands with Sony. I think the reason why this joint-venture was created în 2001 was because Sony is good on the multimedia part and Ericsson on the telephony part. But now with all the know-how and patent technologies from Ericsson Sony won't have problems with the telephony part.

Sony fanboys just don't get a fact that breaking up with Ericsson isn't a good idea.

Ericsson is the one who has OWNED patents and infrastructures in telecommunication industry. Not Sony.

Sony may make a phone that can play psp games on it, but not the phone that actually makes a call.

19evol61, 28 Oct 2011good thing Sony wont be with Ericsson anymore, at least with mob... more"Motorola had Android"??? How many android smartphones will be sold if they give android exclusively to motorola, even the disappointing SE has much better amount of smartphone's shipment in last quarter than motorola did:

Around 80% from total 9.5 million devices shipped were smartphones or equals to 7.6 million units, while at the same period moto can only booked 4.8 million unit smartphones

Google takes motorola mobility only for their patent treasury, not to make this company becoming the one and only android phone producer...
