Submission + - Sony Happy With Third Spot in Smartphone Market (

DavidGilbert99 writes: "Sony is one of the most iconic consumer electronic brands in the world. From inventing portable music players with the Walkman to it iconic range of cameras and TVs the company is a powerhouse in the electronics world.

It is therefore strange to see it set its sights at just third place in the smartphone world, attempting to hold off the likes of HTC, ZTE and Huawei while giving up trying to challenge the behemoths that are Samsung and Apple.

While the launch of the Xperia Z has been widely praised, will it be able to sell the 50 million handsets it needs to just to make third spot in 2013?"
