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.

Yes, and this is in the individual breakdown for the Mobile division, which is more than smartphones. But the foex benefits were greater and cannot be pinned down to a single divisional unit (it has to be spread across all the divisions).

So... What is this an indicator of? Other than your poor understanding of the financials and your grasping at straws?
