Sony Ericsson becomes Sony Mobile Communications:
My friend told me that she is going to buy latest Sony Ericsson phone after selling her used mobile phone. To my sheer astonishment, she told me that she do not know the name of the latest mobile but will ask the shop keeper to give her the newly released Sony Ericsson phone. I told her that the one she has is already the last Sony Ericsson phone and she would not get any mobile phone with Sony Ericsson brand name.
How did it all begin?
Ericsson is one of the largest telecommunication companies of Sweden. The Sony Ericsson - a joint venture of Ericsson and Japanese giant Sony, was founded on October 1, 2001. The company had a dominant position in the mobile phone market for decades and became word’s third largest mobile phone manufacturer. Until, it had to face losses due its inability to produce low priced mobile phones such as Nokia mobiles and the rapidly growing Chinese mobiles. The dominance of iPhone Smartphone, BlackBerry handset, HTC phones and Samsung mobiles in the Smartphone market also had a negative effect on Sony Ericsson phones. Consequently, Ericsson offered to sell its 50% share to Sony. Sony acquired Ericsson's share in the Sony Ericsson phone venture on February 16, 2012.
