Sony Figures Might Silence Nokia Naysayers

Sony shipped 9.6 million handsets last quarter. After three and a half years in the Android market space Sony hasn't really made a great deal of progress.

Which paints Nokia's decision to choose Windows Phone over Android in a much better light.

Nokia's growth has seen it go from zero to just shy of 8 million Windows Phone sales in a little under half that time.

The decision to be a big fish in a little pond has been heavily criticised by some, but if Nokia continues its rate of growth it could be outselling Sony by the end of the year.

Sony's dilemma is how to compete with Samsung's ability to fill every niche with a competitive device.

Nokia's problems look trivial by comparison.

I doubt that this will reduce the mindless calling for a Nokia Android device that follows each and every Lumia that launches.
