Sony wants to be 3rd in global smartphone race
In the global smartphone race that's being furiously fought between Apple and Samsung, what with all the Galaxy models and lawsuits being thrown around, Sony wants to stay away from the trouble and seems contended if they take in the last place on the podium.
As per the most recent IDC reports, Q4 of last year saw Samsung take in the lead with a global market share of 29%, with Apple trailing behind at 21.8%. In the distant third was Huawei with 4.9% and then Sony, with 4.5% and ZTE at 4.3%. In a meeting at Tokyo, Sony Mobile Communication's CEO Kunimasa Suzuki, told reporters that Sony is looking to win third place in the global smartphone market share, as reported by Reuters.
While competition is stiff from both Huawei and ZTE, it seems that Sony will be releasing budget oriented Xperia devices that will hopefully help Sony turn the tide in their favor.
