Sony Ericsson posts Q3 2010 results, still dreams of becoming the largest Android vendor

Sony Ericsson has announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2010.

Like in the previous quarter, the company has managed to make profit ($49 million), despite selling fewer handsets (10.4 million, compared to 11 million in the second quarter).

During Q3, SE launched its Xperia handsets in new markets, including the US and China. This led to smartphones now comprising more than 50% of its sales.

Detailed Q3 results:

Although it still has only four Android smartphones (none of them running the platform’s latest version) and only about 5% of the total number of Android devices out there, Sony Ericsson continues to hope it will, someday, become the world’s largest Android vendor.

“It is our ambition to become the global number one handset provider on the Android platform,” declared the company’s CEO Bert Nordberg.

This being said, we’ll likely see new Android smartphones from Sony Ericsson pretty soon. Just, please, SE, put Froyo and Gingerbread on them, ok?

    I don’t think they will be able to achieve this. The market is too competitive for them now.

    SE make great headsets but they just need to put more of their resources into keeping up with the Android updates if they aim to “become the global number one handset provider on the Android platform”. So hurry up SE!
