Sony Ericsson Refused to Build Nexus One

The CEO of Sony Ericisson, Burt Nordberg, is raising some eyebrows with a statement he made concerning the Nexus One recently to the Swedish publication Sydsvenskan. According to the folks over at Engadget, Nordberg stated in an interview that Sony Ericsson was originally offered the chance to build the Nexus One for the Big G, but refused.

Nordberg states that Sony Ericsson is committed to building only its own-branded hardware and will not be a subcontractor to anyone. Tough words Burt, tough words. Oh well, it isn’t like Sony Ericsson is losing business, they don’t need anything from Google, or do they? Now it’s time for your thoughts Android fans.  Was this a good decision by Sony Ericsson or not?
