Sony Ericsson released full-year results for 2010 and within all the financial blurb, the company revealed that it had sold 9 million Android Xperia handsets during the year. Considering that the Xperia X10 only launched in early April with the X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 following thereafter it seems like a pretty good result for SE.
The real question now is how well will the company do from here. Many customers would have been extremely frustrated being stuck on Android 1.6 for so long and it will be interesting to see how many decide to pick a SE Android handset again. Our personal view is that these numbers will only get higher, as the company does seem to have learned lessons from its 2010 line-up. One thing’s for sure though, its customers won’t tolerate any further mess ups.
