Sony CEO on Sony Ericsson: “It’s certainly been a difficult year”

“It’s certainly been a difficult year but buying out a partner is never an easy thing.” said Sony CEO Howard Stringer about the joint venture with Ericsson. “We have to work together again as we did two years ago. Or the joint venture will have to find its own solution. You’re always engaged in discussion and negotiation. We and Ericsson are always discussing ways of making Sony Ericsson as successful as it possibly can be.”
