SE: Symbian or WinMo, One Has to Go

July 19th, 2010 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Smartphones & Tablets | No Comments »

During the presentation of their Q2 financial results, Bert Nordberg showed his enthusiasm about the success of the Android platform in SonyEricsson’s portfolio. The company is less satisfied with Windows Mobile and Symbian.

Bert said that the company can run better if it scales down from three OS platforms to just two. This means the company will abandon Windows Mobile or Symbian in the next few months. SonyEricsson was mentioned as launch partner of Windows Phone 7 back in February so it is to be expected that SE will drop Symbian in favor of the more hyped Windows Phone 7 platform.

SE will also be putting more focus on the development of Android based devices. SE has the ambition to become the biggest vendor of Android devices. This title is currently held by HTC. SE sold 11 million phones during Q2 2010.
