Sony's recent efforts in the mobile space are beginning to pay off, if we're to judge by the latest statistics from Mobile Today. According to the data, Sony has managed to sell about half a million devices in the UK during the summer, which makes it the second-biggest Android manufacturer by volume after Samsung. Previously, it was HTC that was second, but it has only managed to sell about 440,000 units this summer, so it's now down to third place. Samsung remains firmly at the top with 3.2 million units sold during the same period.
The UK is an important market so that's a pretty neat win for Sony. We guess the Japanese manufacturer managed to climb up due to a more diverse portfolio or products and faster OS updates, which is very important if you're to compete successfully on the Android market nowadays.
