Sony Ericsson announces 2011 results. 6 million Xperia smartphones sold in Q4 2011
Sony Ericsson has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011 and full year 2011 – the last ones before the Ericsson brand disappears from its name (following Sony’s acquisition of Ericsson’s share in the joint venture).
The results are far from being great. The company posted a €207 million loss for Q4 2011, and a €247 loss for full year 2011.
9 million SE handsets have been sold in Q4, and a total of 34.4 million units were shipped throughout the year.
“Our fourth quarter results reflected intense competition, unfavorable macroeconomic conditions and the effects of a natural disaster in Thailand this quarter,” declared Bert Nordberg, President and CEO of Sony Ericsson.
Sony Ericsson also said it sold 28 million Xperia Android smartpohnes to date. Since the number of Xperias shipped was 22 million in Q3, this means a total of 6 million units have been sold in Q4 2011.
