Sony Purchases “Ericsson” Portion of Sony Ericsson

While this may not seem like very important news, it really is.  Sony has just purchased the Ericsson portion of Sony Ericsson mobile for 1.05 billion Euros.  The deal will be complete in January 2012 and will give Sony their own mobile division, which in turn will allow the company to brand out their PlayStation Suite like never before.  Think of what Microsoft is doing with their Phone 7 series, but imagine Sony doing something similar with PlayStation branded phones.  They could create hundreds of unique phones all being able to run various forms of PlayStation software.  They could link the phones with a user’s PlayStation Network account and much more.  We expect very big things to come from this starting next year.
