Sony Ericsson to become simply Sony by mid-2012 - read the full textIf you thought saying Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro was a mouthful then you will be happy to know that at least one word out of that enormous name will be dropped by next year. As we already know, Sony had announced their intent to acquire the Ericsson's stake in Sony Ericsson back in...

The prpblem with SE was that it kept putting all their "Sony" brands into their phones...but didn't deliver:

Walkman was the best thing to happen to the world in the 1980s, but walkman on a phone didn't quite cut it.

Cybershot was a decent camera; but phones marked so weren't much better than other camera-phones.

Bravia mobile screens are good; but I don't really see any connection to the Bravia TVs (they don't even use the same technology)

Plus I admit you are right that the previous generation had a form factor (I misread your previous post and made the argument on technology over form as opposed to technology AND form) that was quirky and out of this world that cannot be duplicated by the current slab of metal and black screens, Nokia 5510, the tear drop design, the Siemens SL55, Nokia 7280, 7700 TV phone, 6670 the RAZR/StarTAC series/V3689/V50, the P800/900's, the nokia communicator series, the list of forms before the IPhone/Android/WP7/Maemo then MeeGo touchscreen era came just goes on and on. Blackberry have not

I think manufacturers have concentrated solely on user experience more than what the device looks like, but at the same time models such as the Iphone 4/Nokia N9/HTC Legend/Motorola RAZR Droid can prove that the one dimensional form factor does work, but how they do that is with the use of materials and elegant edges. With flexi screens and with Sensetec technology that will enable us to feel what we touch, maybe we can relive those form factors we desired pre 2007, before LG Prada and Iphone dictated the market. Sorry for my rant, I hope sony can reproduce a Z5 and J70 successor, arguably one of the many monochrome era phones that revolutionised the ringtone to polyphonic. Sony will realise that any potential successor of the original Sony Polyphonic phone will have to live up to it's expectations and revolutionise this era what it's predecessor did for ringtones from the previous era.

good thing i didn't buy any latest phone from sony ericsson just yet. Since there will be change in the company nest year, they will probably have poor support on their older phones that were with ericsson and probably would focus more in their "Sony" phone line up..

Um.....Ericsson must come back,I am done with the all the crappy phones in the market.I miss my 688 and R520 mobiles....legends!
Remember that Ericsson has an army in R&D and that nearly 40 % of our calls go through an ericsson network and also nearly 1/3 of patents in this sector.

Imagine that they (SONY) create a smartphone with their own stuff in it, like 12 Mpx Cyber shot camera with exmor r sensor and full hd video recording, walkman music player etc.
