Sony Considering Buying Ericsson Out Of SE Project?
Could Sony handle the smartphone market as it stands today? Is Ericsson really the problem? Would Sony actually be better off going at it alone? It's extremely hard to judge; the smartphone universe has shifted dramatically in recent years, and it seems to be shifting even more every single day. If Sony removes the "E" from the existing 50-50 venture, it's not too hard to envision what Sony may try to do: add even more PlayStation flair to their future smartphones. Microsoft has definitely gone to great lengths to integrate sections of Xbox LIVE into Windows Phone 7, and we suspect that Sony may have a similar plan.
Would you be more or less interested in a Sony-branded phone if the "E" were dropped?
