[deleted post]Cheer up dude... :-)
Sony Ericsson divorce is never going to take place. I'm just sharing my opinion.
The only case this would happen will be when SE sinks down in the gutter(but that won't happen at all) :-)
[deleted post]It was Sony who made partnership with ericsson, so they can break it too......!!!
btw, everything is fair in love & war :-P isn't it ??? & this is a war of capturing World's mobile market.
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2011Is there any japanese brand that could retain their existence continuously beside sony (with e... moreNo Japanese brand(except Sony) is interested in having dominance in worldwide market.
Let me give u an example - south korea is one of the closest country to japan(geographical situation wise) but still their companies like samsung & lg r on their way to capture World's mobile market. Why don't they have any problem with it ? Their headquarters r also situated in south korea not in london or usa but still they r shaking ur World's mobile market... how ?
If Sony get's out of their partnership with ericsson than it's not going to have any -ve impact on their worldwide presence but it will only improve the situation.
Mobile World is abt being revolutionary these days & that can only be possible be with those Sony technologies I mentioned.
abhi, 05 Mar 2011Yeah, ericsson was the one who helped Sony at that time but now it's nothing for Sony. At that... moreIs there any japanese brand that could retain their existence continuously beside sony (with ericsson)? Their policy might be changed when they have to be exist in two different kind of markets. Japanese markets are unique when we compare to the global markets. Unless the London HQ can be occupied by the japanese... but I doubt they will
My point is those japanese brands need partnership when they're gonna go international and keeping their existence, coz basically they will working twice harder - for japanese and overseas markets.
And to counter all your informations about the awesome tech that Sony has achieved, people dont need them right now. You see, people now (just) want to try to make video calling, a feature that common in japan since 2005
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2011Absolutely no way!! Sorry abhi, I would never agree about this. Where were Sony in the world m... moreI'm mentioning just some extremely Awesome technologies which Sony has developed just for mobiles from a long time but they r nowhere to be seen in SE phones - TransferJet( a wireless technology which can make the phones transfer data at the insanely fast speed of 550 mbps speed & remember no wires r needed in this tech, it's like bluetooth) , (12 mpx, 16 mpx & 17.7 mpx camera modules which can record Full HD videos at 120 fps) , hybrid wires which can make phones insanely thin & durable & bendable, OLED screens which Sony has been using in their walkmans, PDA's, Tv's from long time but nothing in SE phones, Qriocity media based demand service which can't even be seen in SE phones.
I heard Arc doesnt get any upgradation form Android 2.3.. is it so ?? why ?? does it mean its a bad thing ?
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2011Absolutely no way!! Sorry abhi, I would never agree about this. Where were Sony in the world m... moreYeah, ericsson was the one who helped Sony at that time but now it's nothing for Sony. At that time Sony was just a newcomer which didn't have any knowledge abt phones. That's why their phones didn't do well. In starting yrs even samsung was struggling to make good phones but they never partnered with anyone(they didn't have anyone to be partner with :-P) & now they r going ahead of everyone due to their unification at one place(south korea).
Now a days Sony is announcing so many new technologies for mobile phones(check out Global Sony site) which would have been in SE from 1st day if it was just Sony.
Take a look at NGP - only one thing is needed in it to make it World's best phone ever & that is ability to make calls(cellular chip).
Sony has enough experience now & they can do thousand times better if they do everything on their own. Sony
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2011Absolutely no way!! Sorry abhi, I would never agree about this. Where were Sony in the world m... moreYou are right too in some parts. Ericsson is a major developer of telecommunication as you said, but I think that because of Ericsson SE is not among the 3 best mobile phone manufacturers. And it is annoying that almost every SE phone is made in China, and NOT in Japan or Sweden! We can't really trust China, because of their government.
abhi, 05 Mar 2011I have always wanted Sony to get out of this partnership with Ericsson. It's not working out ... moreI agree with you, that Sony is advanced, and they should split up. Sony is on a different level. Sony sounds cool, but Sony Ericsson sounds weird! :)) I would like Sony to produce some phones at least for Japan, to see what they are capable to do. :-> About the headquarters, there are at different places, and it is very logic for me. The Sony workers are almost 100% Japanese people, but this is different at SE...
abhi, 05 Mar 2011Hey guys... how many of u want Sony to break their partnership with Ericsson & start makin... moreAbsolutely no way!! Sorry abhi, I would never agree about this. Where were Sony in the world market when they were just a singleton player? Not even as a main player in japan. Yes Sony has all the advanced multi media tech, but Ericsson that built the market for Sony when we talk about telecommunication devices.
Mobilemaster, 05 Mar 2011I heard some rumors about this in 2008! :P It could be great, since Sony is a very popular bra... moreI have always wanted Sony to get out of this partnership with Ericsson.
It's not working out at all...
Ericsson does nothing but complicate the things for Sony.
Due to SE being a joint venture, Sony's communication with SE is almost null. Sony hardly gives permission to use their technology in SE phones. Morover the headquarters, research facilities, manufacturing units, management of Sony & SE r located at diff. places making their communication with each other almost impossible. Even the engineers in SE r not the ones which work for Sony.
SE is working as a completely separate entity & getting nothing from sony.
If the mobile department had been 100% sony's part situated at their headquarters in Tokyo than sony's mobile phones would have been the top selling devices in the market due to latest tech implementations from sony & sony would have put much more money into it's mobile division without fearing abt any kind of loss.

Jiten, 05 Mar 2011Xperia arc versus Xperia neo – which should you choose? Sony Ericsson has created a dilemma... moreare you blind? look at xperia neo's specs again. the 320MB is the INTERNAL memory, not the RAM. so all in all, xperia arc's advantage only over xperia neo is it's larger screen. :)
