Is it true that Sony is producing smartphone under its own label, having splits with Ericsson last year?
Yes, indeed. Sony has undertaken the smartphone series Xperia (formerly Sony Ericsson Xperia).
These smartphone were started under the label of Sony Ericsson (joint venture between Sony Corporation and Ericsson) which was afterwards undertaken by Sony Corporation.
These are some impressive cutting edge smartphones coming with Android and Windows Mobile support. This series is quite impressive with its big touch screen and android support. Some of the high end phones of this series are Xperia S and Xperia U etc. with HD screens and dual-core processors and high resolution cameras.
Sony surely can compete in smartphone market with these specs and design.
Yes, that’s true. Sony is beginning to produce its own line of Smartphones like the Sony Xperia S. But Sony didn’t split with Ericsson like what you are saying. Sony bought Ericsson in January of 2012 after releasing Sony Xperia S. The Smartphone was initially known in Japan as Sony Ericsson Xperia NX until it became the now known Sony Xperia S after the acquisition. Here is a brief information about the new Smartphone, the new Sony Xperia S.
The Sony Xperia S was available since February 29 of 2012 after it was launched also that same year. It was originally known as Sony Ericsson Xperia NX in Japan until Sony acquired Ericsson in January of 2012. This was the first Sony-only branded Smartphone after the acquisition. It was admired for its hardware, high-definition display, voice clarity, unique design, and efficient camera during its launch. Almost 90% of the Smartphone’s front is display.
The downside of the Smartphone is its lack of removable media support and battery. Although it looks good and has high specifications, it doesn’t support external memory cards. So if you are not aware of it and you have your memory card to use with it, you will only be disappointed because you won’t be able to use any of your memory cards. Even if it doesn’t have an external memory card support it still has a lot of internal storage which is 32 GB. The Smartphone is originally shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and can be upgraded to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 chipset with 1.5 GHz dual-core Scorpion processor, Qualcomm Adreno 220 GPU, and 1 GB RAM.
