Sony Ericsson Discription

Sony Ericsson is a joint venture established in 2001 by the Japanese electronics Sony Corporation and the Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson to make mobile phones. The reasons for this venture is to combine consumer electronics expertise with Sony Ericsson's technology leadership in the communications sector. Both companies have stopped making their own mobile phones.

The management company in the world is based in Hammersmith, London, and he has teams of research and development in Sweden, Japan, China, Canada, Netherlands, the United States, India and the United Kingdom, Uni.

Sony Ericsson has around 8000 employees worldwide. With a 43% annual growth rate, it has become the fastest growing mobile T3 seller 2006 compared to Motorola, with a rate of 39%. In 2007, Sony Ericsson had surpassed Nokia to become the most profitable mobilephone maker in terms of net profit rate, behind Nokia and gross margin.

Ericsson, which had been in the cell phone market for decades, decided to dispose of that business in 2001 following huge losses. Ericsson has decided to source on chips for its phones from a single source, a Philips facility in New Mexico. In March 2000, a fire at the Philips plant contaminated installation sterile. Philips assured Ericsson and Nokia (another major customer of the institution), that production may be delayed by less than a week. When it became clear that production could indeed be jeopardized for months, Ericsson has been facing an acute shortage. Nokia has already started to get parts from other sources, but Ericsson's position is far worse at the same time as current models of production and the launch of new was arrested.
