PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Like LG, Sony's smartphone division is now also doing quite well:

In the three months between April and June of this year, Sony saw both a "significant increase in unit sales" of its Android smartphones and an improved average selling price per handset. That's at the heart of the company's improved profitability.

The common parlance that only Samsung is profiting off Android is, as I've said before, simply no longer true. All it took for companies like LG and Sony to become profitable with Android is to, you know, stop making crap phones, and start producing good ones.

Shocker.

Fair enought, this is what I posted about your comment and about MS OS use.

Do you think should it pick MS mobile OS, and selling the volume they do, would Microsoft ask a little as it does now? I don't think so, and it, very probably, would have a big impact on Samsung net profit. I am not implying you, somehow, left this scenario tacit, it was only to illustrate one possible alternative and to leave, beforehand, an argument to the ones that fall toward this.
