Too bad MS will takeover Nokia :(
Just the thought of MS taking over Nokia is unacceptable.

Comparing Sony Xperia sales with Nokia Lumia sales is basically comparison between Xperia Z high end high margin phone (almost half of all Sony phone sales was the Xperia Z model ), and the Lumia 520 entry level dumping price zero margin phone (more than half of all Lumia sales).
This is further evident from the fact that Sony smartphone division is the only part of Sony that is financially even, while the Nokia smartphone division is the only part of Nokia that was in red last quarter.

Keep it up. They need to improve on Displays, first thing.

the next 2 xperia flagships in the Z line most likely to bring much better display in terms of viewing angles.

I want to see more smartphones in the US. Don't just stay in Europe and Asia. Also need to hire better people for support, especially in the US cuz they suck. I called in with questions, they couldn't answer any and they were straight forward questions.

So...which phone was a better success?? Htc one or xperia z?? Considering the fact that z saved sony and one did nothing to save htc...(don't get me wrong..i know that one is far more superior compared to z...but im asking about the success...)

10M unit sold with 4 Billion income!!!
Thats why they are 3rd in revenue.
Imagine if they sold 20M units they can have 8 Billion profit which match sammy and apply!!

you are funny. big improvements come over time. the results are GREAT for sony mobile, next year sony will sell more, the next year after that even more, etc. if sony continues to go up like this then in few years they will definitely be in the top 3. there's no reasons for them not to be in top 3 as they are always bringing better and better devices to the market. i can't wait for Xperia Z2 to come. it's going to be a BEAST. samsung won't stay on top forever.

mm yea i knw it takes time but my point is that 10 million is not a big number may be record for sony but the pace of growth isnt that big it will take may be another 10 years for sony to even sell half of mobiles which sammy n apple sell
