Sony trumps HTC to become the second-biggest Android manufacturer in the UK

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.
Sony is a great company, what I feel is happening to them is, Times are changing, and the way we "used" to do business has slowly diminished.........and it is BECAUSE, times are changing that companies are taking advantage of those who haven't quite seen what that change is yet......therefore allowing companies with their "eyes open" to trump all over them......Is it right whats being done to them? Yes and no, No because you don't kick someone when they are down, or if they are "left behind" .......you go back and get them, if you respect that person or have love for them.........and Yes because Sony has to, sooner or later, do what is necessary to regain their "rightful" position.......even if it means playing the justice game and making others give back what you once owned! Full faith in you Sony and no matter what you will always be apart of my childhood and young teen days..........as well as even now :)

so is what she stated, what about the loyal fans that would buy an xperia phone regardless of what it looks like?? yes design is a major selling point but not the "only" reason why people buy a phone Look its wendy were talking about here do i need to explain any further? :( the only reason why im responding to her is because people seem to believe what she just wrote.....and that would be a lie to say it is because of design only that people bought an xperia phone when you have people that like the Sony brand alone, they also like the exclusive walkman music app it brings, and it being a playstation certified phone makes it even more desirable!

This is mainly because Sony offered low-end and mid-range devices...

They still need to leap frog samsung's hardware (processors) to do just that. Also they need to focus more on future rival devices rather that competing against the SGS3 & iPhone5 when they made the Odin/Yuga.

Sony currently concentrate their efforts on Android (to develop feature rich customized versions of Android I guess). Sony is very strong in cameras, screens and games too. Sony brand is one of the biggest and I believe Sony will be very successful next year. SS will still be on top but I think Sony will move very close to them.

HTC makes nice phones but they do not have muscles to compete with the best. HTC has very little resources: ecosystem, capital, manufacturing arms, software development... Sony has almost everything, they lacked focus that's why their position dropped so low, but once they regain the focus... SS watch out!!
