Forums - Mobile Discussion - Rise of Sony Mobile, Lenovo to benefit Taiwan handset ODMs

Sony Mobile Communications and Lenovo have both strengthened their positions in the global smartphone market, which will benefit their handset ODM partners in Taiwan, Foxconn International Holdings (FIH), Compal Communications and Arima Communications, according to industry sources.

Lenovo has managed to ramp up its share in China's smartphone market from a mere 1.7% in 2011 to 14.8% recently, capitalizing on the rising demand for entry-level to mid-range models in the local market, the sources noted.

Lenovo, which has been cooperating with Compal Communications, FIH, Wistron NeWeb and Qisda for handset production, is now moving aggressively into the smartphone segment in Russia, India, Indonesia and other emerging markets, the sources revealed.

 

Sony Mobile shipped 8.8 million smartphones in the third quarter of 2012, taking the third position in the global smartphone vendor rankings for the quarter.

Although Sony Mobile is still operating in the red, the vendor is expected to swing back to profitability when its quarterly smartphone shipments surpass 10 million units, the sources estimated.

It really is, Sony has 8.8 this last Quarter when they started 2012 back in feb, they were at 6.4 Million per sales Quarter, once they hit over 10 million they will be into profit , but the thing is Sony is aiming for 50+ million by the end of 2013 leading into summer 2014, and they are currently expected to ship over 35 million for 2013!  if they do obtain those projections, they will have surpassed their 50 million mark. currently there is 20 million on order for the 4th quarter 2012 leading into 1st Quarter 2013 out of China
