Sony Ericsson to go Smartphone Only From 2012

By Gary Cutlack on at

Amid the numbers and percentages in Sony Ericsson's Q3 financial data is a quote from CEO Bert Nordberg, in which he says the company will move "the entire portfolio to smartphones" by 2012. That K600i update isn't happening.

Elsewhere in the update, SE reveals just how heavily it relies upon its smartphone range already, with 80% of the company's sales during Q3 coming from its Android-based Xperia models. It's sold 22m of those in total so far. [SE]
