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.

...which is miles from the thesis of Thom's article.

If the article was, "Sony avoids dying because of Android," I'd say this quarter's financials are far from proving that, but that's not remotely the point.

So it's not an argument worth addressing (one that wasn't raised and is a hypothetical based on an alternate history -- comparing how they'd perform if Android did not exist).
