Sony is not happy with Ericsson that's why SE won't give Playstation brand to SE. 2008 is a disaster for SE with unstable A200 platform, it could be worse in 2009 recession.
Wow! Great news for the Koreans specially from a conglomerate of a soap manufacturer and an electronics company!
aborne lbm, 21 Jan 2009how can they be worried at shipping just under 100 million units thats easily over 100 million... morelol @aborne lbm
Turnover and profit are 2 very different things dude.
RIP SE (from an ex-diehard SE fan who now uses a Samsung Innov8).
Well done LG! I love LG mobile phones very much since last year. It has a big improve on the new models they launched in 2008. SE is going to the end of the road not far from now.
aborne lbm, 21 Jan 2009how can they be worried at shipping just under 100 million units thats easily over 100 million... more100m to a business the size of SE is a tiny amount of money considering the oulay the have to make in terms of worldwide wages research and overheads ( + many more expenses (to many to list)) if they keep bringing in that amount of money they wont last long!!
None of these can touch Nokia, SE is not doing well and Motorola company still in deep financial crisis because most of their sold units are 50 dollar phones in third world countries, which means they have to sell like 10-15 units to make same profit as one N-series Nokia, and using up 10-15 the body material as well for that many phones. I don't know how LG got those numbers, i see like 1 out of 100 people with a LG phone, they are probably cornering the Asian market. I read last week that Nokia sells in year what the other four companies sells in 5 years.

2nd... Besides 50 million of those would have cost below $50 and sold in India and Africa
SonyEricsson is going downn, down and down. They are dropping ranks like noone else and are loosing way to much money. Some rumors suggest that the company will be split up, i mean the joint-venture between sony and ericcson will be stopped this mid-year. Neither Sony nor Ericsson have any plans to be a major cell-phone supplier.
