There’s been some talk of this happening and over the past week it has. As of January 26th, the company, Sony Ericsson, is solely owned by Sony. Their former partner Ericsson sold their stake for $1.47 billion. Sony Ericsson had a rough year, closing out 2011 with a $318 million dollar loss in the 4th quarter of 2011. Moving forward the company’s aim is to update their device line to ICS in hopes that consumers will pick up their devices on confidence of updates. Of course, they also have some exciting new devices slated including the Xperia Ion and Xperia S. Here’s hoping Sony makes good of their acquisition.
