Sony dialing down smartphones plans, report says

Sony looks to be shaking things up on the smartphone front, says the Wall Street Journal.  Reportedly, Sony expects to layoff employs as part of a restructuring and streamlining over the coming year. After once gunning for the world’s #3 spot behind Apple and Samsung, Sony is said to now be reducing its presence in China and emerging markets. What’s more, Sony is looking at exactly how much effort to place on the United States.With only a few models being offered via carrier today, it’s possible we see them place less emphasis here in North America.
