Sony Ericsson records $318 million loss for Q4

Today Sony Ericsson announced their Q4 reports and had some less than stellar news to share. I didn't want to call this earnings because it appears they've actually recorded a $318 million dollar loss for Q4 instead of earnings. This was a pre-tax loss of €247m ($318m) amid “intense competition” along with the poor economic climate. Hopefully their new take on Android will help things out in the coming months.

Sony Ericsson drops another Xperia phone teaser ahead of CES

Lucky number three. Today Sony Ericsson has posted their third teaser image sporting what looks to be the new Sony Ericsson Xperia flagship smartphone they'll be unveiling at CES. If all of the previous rumors and leaks turn out to be accurate this will be the Xperia Arc HD (aka Nozomi) -- but we could also be seeing multiple new devices from Sony at this years show as this new image looks different than the Nozomi.

CyanogenMod nightlies now on select XPERIA devices

In a perfect world, all Android OS devices would ship with a clean, official version of CyanogenMod free of bloatware. But the world isn't perfect, so night after night we hope one day - CyanogenMod will start supporting our device.

Sony offering free Movies and 90 days of Music Unlimited for new Xperia owners
