SonyErricson has developed itself as a strong brand among the customers. They come up with hip phone and they have different kind of following. However, they have struggled with smartphones and tablet segments. The reason to buyout majority shares in Ericsson is not given but the venture was going solid.

Sony has been trying. The quality of 3D TV is impressive. I have been in SonyStyle shop to check out their 3D TV. The improvement over a year and half is substantial. If I am not wrong, I believe they are the first vendor to leverage the special glasses for improvement the 3D experience. Now, with all the stumbling block and slow market penetration, they have invented personal 3D viewer. In camera area, they have invented a digital camera which can take panorama picture. It is handy and extremely useful when I visited Grand Canyon. Sony was properly one of the first few companies who makes eReader even before Amazon. PS3 is a pretty good game console. Blu-ray is among a lot of inventions that Sony has made lately. The strategy of penetrating Blu-ray to the market, kicking HD-DVD out, is worth studying. I believe Sony has been continuing to innovate although not all products are successful. I can't wait to see what excellent product they will launch after holding majority control of Ericsson. It is indeed a good move for Sony given the trend.

It seems Sony cannot innovate these days. To me, this is not a good deal. They need to have a plan and stop all these wide spreading hoping to catch a good fish.

It is a good deal for Sony, but I do not think that will be affect in any way to the end users, as the mobile phones comes with all types of connectivity using one way or another.
