Sony Ericsson, DoCoMo reviewing phone union

If reports are right, it looks like the partnership between Sony Ericsson and Japanese giant NTT DoCoMo might have hit a snag. According to Trading Markets, the pair are reviewing their product development plans but declined to say what the results might be.

Earlier reports had suggested that Sony Ericsson would stop supplying devices to DoCoMo altogether, but Sony Ericsson has been denying this and the AFP quotes a spokesman as saying the company has no plans to ditch the Japanese market.

I’ll be interested to find out how NTT DoCoMo and Sony Ericsson will change their plans, but I can’t see the attraction in cutting ties completely – Japan might be a tough market right now, but it’s still practically the centre of the universe for mobile developments.
