This is exactly why Sony is failing. They are moving from one over-saturated market to another. Even worse, Sony is going to do high-end stuff.

More expensive boutique items that no one is going to buy.

Depressing.

Sony have been making smartphones for years now (first as the lead partners of Sony Ericsson and for about a year or so as simply Sony). They're not "going into" smartphones. They are focusing their entire mobile division on smartphones (at least in Western markets).

Well, that's clearly been working out for them. Just look at how their high-end TVs have been doing!

This is a shift in strategy within Sony's mobile division. That division does not have nothing to do with the Vita.

Another field for Sony to place dead last in?

Exciting!

I've seen a few videos about their new phone and it look sooo sweet.
But it's got the dumbest name for a phone I've ever seen.

Of course this is the same market that this is happening in:

Sony, once again, a day late and a dollar short.
