We are delighted to report that we have come to an agreement with Sony Ericsson that means our two affected blogs (XperiaBlog.net and XperiaX10.net) will remain open. The downtime we have experienced since October 18th was unfortunate but necessary whilst we were in communication with Sony Ericsson to resolve this matter.
Sony Ericsson contacted us to let us know that it appreciates our support of its products and the efforts we have put into developing these blogs. They also appreciate the engagement of blogs like these and consumers who visit these sites. Sony Ericsson dropped the initial complaint and we have instead reached an agreement so that we can keep the domain names and continue to work on the site. Just to reassure you, there will be no change to our editorial independence under this arrangement. We will continue to give you our honest opinion about Sony Ericsson’s strategy and its smartphones.
We would like to thank all of our readers for your overwhelming support. Many people got in touch or left comments in support of our work. We apologise for the absence of any updates for the last few weeks (this was necessary in order for negotiations to progress) but we will strive to continue where we left off – covering the latest Sony Ericsson Xperia news and reviews to the best of our ability.
The recent news regarding Sony’s acquisition of Ericsson’s stake in the Sony Ericsson joint venture leaves us even more excited about developments for the company’s future smartphones. Thankfully, we will now be there sharing our thoughts through every step of the journey.
