But... it's smartphone business has seen a 39% increase in sales, thanks to consumers who would usually buy high-end HTC handsets scooping up Xperia handsets instead. Sony is seeing some great sales in its Xperia Z1, which is the only smartphone in Sony's arsenal that can even begin to compete with the mammoth sales of Samsung's Galaxy range of devices.

 

The next thing Sony has to do is break out into the lucrative US market, which is mainly dominated by Apple and Samsung right now. But, with BlackBerry all but done, HTC continuing to lose its grip, it might be high time that Sony makes its move.
