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.

Would you consider a profit margin of -14.5% to be "doing quite well?"

Yes, profits are good, loses not. That it always can be more profits isn't any argument, its a shared agenda that applies as well to Samsung and Apple, always.

Sony grows, makes profits in a highly competative market, in an increasing important market. They reentered late, got there acts together and already passed the likes of Nokia and actually make PROFIT while continue to grow. That's what I name healthy, a perspective, something to build up on, a future.
