More importantly for Sony, gaining full ownership of Sony Ericsson will clear the way to integrate the company's devices into Sony's online entertainment network and offer a broad range of Sony owned content from companies like Sony Pictures and Sony Music Entertainment.
According to a statement from Sony Chairman, CEO & President Howard Stringer:
We can more rapidly and more widely offer consumers smartphones, laptops, tablets and televisions that seamlessly connect with one another and open up new worlds of online entertainment. This includes Sony?s own acclaimed network services, like the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network,
The deal is expected to close next January.
