History of the top five phone manufacturers
The company’s smartphones are of special interest. The first from that line, P800, was demonstrated in 2003. The biggest success, however, is related basically to the models of the W and K (musical and camera respectively) series. K750, released on the market in 2005, is the most successful Sony Ericsson phone.
Obviously, this heyday has gone, and in the recent trimester (the second of 2008), a sales fall of 97% has been registered. It made the company announce the forthcoming dismissal of 2000 workers.
It is interesting to know how the phones are being named during the process of their developing. They all bear women’s names and a great deal of these belong to famous tennis-players from the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), whose global sponsor is the company. We are very much looking forward to the visit of Venus (XPERIA X1) and Shiho (C905).
