Mon - Sony Ericsson sees strong results

Sony Ericsson, the mobile phone maker, delivered a strong third- quarter performance boosted by its new range of top-end phones, including its new Walkman music-player device.

The company’s third quarter received a boost from the launch of a number of top-end phones, including its Walkman range of music players and a number of advanced camera phones.

Sony Ericsson joins the other leading handset manufacturers in announcing better than predicted results and global handset demand. All of the top 6 handset manufacturers including Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson and BenQ Siemens have seen market share gains, proving that the top six are now pulling away from the pack.

Sales growth has come from developing markets as well as faster phone renewal rates for maturer markets with the launch of more sophisticated devices on advanced networks offering email, internet browsing, games, music and camera.
