Sony spends €1 billion to take full control of Sony Ericsson

Have a read of this one from Reuters:

Sony Corp is to buy full control of the Sony Ericsson mobile phone venture from its Swedish partner as it seeks to boost its consumer products offering and to catch up on smartphone and tablet makers such as Apple and Samsung

It’s about time, isn’t it? If anything, it’s rather late in the day. I’d have liked to have seen what Sony would have done with the company 1-2 years ago. Still, I’m excited at the possibilities. Now, perhaps, we will see truly a suite of truly integrated consumer (and mobile) electronics? Come on Sony!
