Sony Ericsson is no more, long live Sony Mobile Communications
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 09, 2012, 8:11 PM
Sony paid its way out of it to the tune of $1.47 billion, and called it a day. The company will rebrand its phones division to Sony Mobile Communications, and out handsets with only the coveted Sony in the front, as was revealed today in flesh and blood with the Sony Xperia ion and Xperia S. We admit we'll miss a little the silver and green SE logo that was, but not having to write Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro twenty times in a review will more than make up for it.Thus,
The Xperia ion and Xperia S are not only the best smartphones that the company has created to date, but also mark a new beginning for Sony, which is struggling to regain its previous glory across the world of consumer electronics. We cross fingers for Sony to pull through, as the more quality companies in the game, the more we'll benefit in the form of thin, light and amazingly capable handsets and tablets.

Who cares! The only thing that really matters is producing a great product anyway.

I get your point but this is Sony's only chance at redemption and it is well respected. So at least show some type of gratitude towards Sony. They are really trying hard to fight this android battle and so far they have been doing a decent job.

Will miss the SE logo but what can you do. Always had a soft spot for Sony Ericsson so all the best to them. If only they bring out a WP8 Apollo by years end with similar specs as the Xperia S and personally I'll be a happy camper

http://blog.sony.com/video-pro...2012-gadgets Xperia S and ion will have GB in the demo models. Available in Q1 & Q2 and is upgradable to ICS maybe on its final model.
