i think se now should start selling these 20$ headsets like nokia and samsung to in order te get more profit.
coz nokia sells more under 200$ headstes.like here in africa they are selling millions of 1202 headsets which are just 20$
Now SE should do the same
Wow, that's a huge loss, but they've seen it coming. Few new releases, nothing that stands out, maybe SE is the new Motorola.
Anyway they've been downsizing here in motherland for a couple of years now, not a lot of engineers are left to make new phones, which explains constant delays, software bugs and other stuff.
And another reason to the huge loss is all the royalties SE has to pay to its owners Sony and Ericson for all the technologies and trademarks they are using, all that loss went to someone's pockets.
SE will rise again . let's make vivaz as the starting point to make believe again . LONG LIVE SE ! :)
When SE finally make a phone with a 3.5mm jack, they leave out the radio. Do they really expect people to buy an expensive phone with a fast port instead of a 3.5mm audio jack. Nokia include 3.5mm jacks even on their low end phones with only FM radios, how can SE compete?
Then there is the m2 cards that is 3 times more expensive than a micro sd card, what do SE expect?
Sorry SE I am very disappointed that you could never keep up with competitors like Nokia, Samsung and LG
SE needs to release their phones sooner. They make official announcements of a great new phone with amazing capabilities but take almost a whole year to finally release it and by then, its already old technology and no one wants it anymore due to the competitors having already released much better phones. Like the X1: when I first heard news of it, I was sure it would be my next phone but alas, it took 9 months for it to actually be available and by then, it wasn't so appealing. GET YOUR PHONES RELEASED ON TIME SE...
I smell bankruptcy in the air,take that se..!!!
You deserved this loss,i still have unfinished grudge with your w890 & w910,took them to your service center each phone twice and your favorite feature nonstop-able random auto restart remain and getting more frequent,so that's it,Bye2 se,i'm sure NOT gonna miss you.
my prediction of your fall soon will become true,now i'm considering business as fortune teller,i'm gifted in this..!!!
SOny Ericson is a legendary company , it started walkman & every other manufacturer wanted 2 make music fones. IT started cybershot & every one wanted 2 make camera fones. SE is the benchmark setter & others follow so SE will never die. LONG LIVE SE.
RIP Sony Ericsson, you have slowly but surely pushed most of your loyal customers away over the past few years. I have owed about 4 different models of your phones, last one being the K850i. When it messed me about I seen through other users how unreliable the software was, I jumped to Samsung who seemed taking the good points from different phones and combining them in one. Havent looked back from Samsung since. Have been interested in some of the Sony Handsets but by the time they release them theyre nothing new anymore and Ive got bored and bought a new phone! RIP.
I'm so sorry to hear such news for SE.. I was a loyal SE customer but they didnt offer anything new thats why people are fed up! because of their overpriced late technology products so I had to shift to Samsung!.. Pixon 12, Omnia HD they're rocking!!.. Wish you the best SE but i've moved on...
LEE, 22 Jan 2010megapixels not major issue on phones anything above 3.2 is a waste on mobiles unless u print t... morejust because you have an iphone with an old crappy 3.2 megapixel it doesn't make the others waste. more megapixel the bigger the resolution and thus looks more sharp and crisp. you probably have an old monitor with a resolution of 1024x768. lol get a grip
such heavy destruction, no even 'Sony' would lend a hand
167M euro, not even dollors.. euro!
836 million euro net loss, thats enough to start a new company
The reason SonyEricsson is losing money is coz, their phones are bad design, overpriced, poor features and outdated softwares, no 3.5mm jacks, no miniUSB connectivity, no microSD cards, unreliable etc......
SonyEricsson wasn't able to manufaceture a handset like nokia n97, E71, etc....
I hope u guys get the picture...
and also i smell other competitors play dirty on SE... Poor SE. They need to gain their good reputation again,,
I used to love SE, their phones aren't all bad. Yes i agree with most ppl opinion.. Release the phones on time, put it a competitive price. Make a budget touchscreen. Market/trend is dynamic.
Cmon SE make.believe
I am not surprised at that in the least bit. I think that the folks at Sony Ericsson got too complacent just cause the loyal customers would still buy their mediocre handsets for hefty sums, even though they are outdated. Truth be told, they make phones with a lot of potential, but that is all there is to it. Take the X2 for example, all the hardware is there for it to be a great phone, but it only has a slight upgrade to its older brother the X1. Then with the Satio, almost a year after its announcement, it comes with limited compatibility and so on. Now they have the X10 which the world have been waiting on for so long not even released yet, and still it will be released without the latest OS. What is wrong with these people?? Every other phone brand makes crappy phones, but still they are sporting the latest OS and apps that customers need. I was totally into Sony Ericsson but now I am sorry but have to be looking elsewhere. Nokia is looking real good, so too is HTC and Samsung is really going after everyone's customers' taste. I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung becomes the world's number 1 in coming years just cause they are looking out for their customers. Apple should get a hardware keypad on their Iphone and get a flash player onboard and also do something to their camera and video capabilities then they will be totally untouchable, Blackberry too. I really hope Sony Ericsson will finally start listening to customers again cause if not, in a few months, they'll not be selling any phones at all
best physically looking phones for me. but inside, SE are stuck in the 20th century, extremely overpriced (all sony products are) and released too late( X2 was born dead). It,s a shame, probably smarter and more humble people needed in their management.
PD: you could get in ebay a milestone and a google nexus one (both android) at much better prices than X2 and Satio !!(you dont need a PHD to know the best choice) simply unveliebable!
recent mobile history shown us that the best cameras on mobiles are at nokia and samsung. nokia n86's 8 mp camera is still the best at 8mp range mobiles.nokia have only one model with 8mp,but it's the best camera in 8mp range. video recordig it's still medium,but this year nokia will have for sure 12 mp with hd recording. always nokia have the biggest number of d.p.i. at the same resolutions with s-e or samsung
