SONY Ericsson sets sights on becoming largest global Android smartphone supplier

The battle for Android market share should get pretty interesting over the next year or so.  SONY Ericsson CEO, Bert Nordberg stated today that the company plans on becoming the world’s biggest supplier of Android powered smartphones.  SONY Ericsson’s current Android market share sits at 17% while the leader of the Android segment has 23%.  Bert Nordberg did not give a time frame or specify exactly how SE is planning on leapfrogging the competition. 

SONY Ericsson’s current Android lineup has some potential, but many Android enthusiasts have looked the other way as other manufacturers have been churning out more powerful devices with the latest versions of Android (all of SE’s Android phones still run on Android 1.6).  For the near future, not much is going to change, but don’t be surprised if SONY Ericsson reinvents their Android strategy in the next 12-18 months.  Who know, that Android powered PlayStation phone might actually come to fruition and completely change the Android landscape.
