What will happen to Sony-Ericsson Philippines?

Now that Sony has finalized the buyout of Sony-Ericsson, the new handset company will be named Sony Mobile Communications. So what happens to the folks over at Sony-Ericsson. I happen to talk to one executive from the company who gave me some possible scenarios.

I am told that Sony-Ericsson Philippines will eventually be dissolved and Sony Philippines will take over the mobile phone brand.


As for the folks from SE Philippines, they will all be invited to move and work for Sony Philippines under the mobile handset division. What we’re not sure is if the GM and some of the top executives of Sony-Ericsson will also join the Sony Philippines team under the new division.

We’re likely to see the new Sony Xperia handsets (i.e. the Xperia S) will be launched in the Philippines by 2nd quarter of 2012.

Updated: I have just been told by someone from inside that the Sony Xperia S will be released in the Philippines after the Holy Week, that’s first to 2nd week of April 2012.

      Sony Ericsson is becoming part of Sony

      Dear Ian,

      I wanted to give you some more information about Sony’s intended purchase of Sony Ericsson and what it means for you.

      Some things won’t change at all. For example, your existing warranty will remain completely valid and you’ll still get the same great service and support that you’ve been used to. But you will see some important new benefits.

      Your Sony Ericsson phone already features great Sony technology. But in future, you can expect even more leading-edge Sony capabilities – and easy connectivity with other Sony products including TVs, PCs and tablets to allow you to share content seamlessly across multiple screens. There will also be more opportunities to enjoy premium entertainment content from Sony including music and film services from the Sony Entertainment Network.

      The first smartphone product from Sony, available this Spring, will be the new Sony Xperiaâ„¢ S

      We’re really excited about the future and we’d like to keep in touch with you as we become part of Sony. To help us with this, you can update your profile info as usual. We look forward to sharing the journey with you.

    I hope that the Sony Ericsson Philippines employees, specially the ones who simply do not care about the client base, will get the boot. We don’t need employees like these, who simply do not give a damn. Good riddance.

    I love Sony when it comes to their phones. To think even their mid-range models give real good audio & image output. And they real make it worth the money when you get a high-end model coz it really comes in handy for enhanced image & audio usage.
