Sony sold 9.9 million Xperia handsets last quarter - definitely not enough to feed the company’s ambitions of becoming the world’s third-largest smartphone maker. Although high-end Xperias seem to be successful, mid-range models just can't attract too many customers.
Despite the current state of things, Sony CFO Kenichiro Yoshida declared:
As we reported yesterday, Sony’s Mobile Communications unit will have a new CEO starting November 16. The current President and CEO, Kunimasa Suzuki, will be replaced by Hiroki Totoki, who at the moment serves as Sony’s CEO and senior VP of Business Strategy, Corporate Development and Transformation. Naturally, Sony hopes that this change will have a positive impact on smartphone sales.
