So which phone is your winner?

Samsung dropped by leading carrier – details

DoCoMo has decided to omit Samsung from its winter devices after the Samsung Galaxy S4 missed the summer sales target by 30%. DoCoMo has chosen models from Sony, Sharp and Fujitsu instead.

During the summer, Sony’s Experia A managed to sell 1.3 million units at DoCoMo, while the Galaxy S4 moved just 700,000 units.

Sony seems to be on a bit of a roll at the moment with its Xperia range.

Sony planning 20mp clip on lens for its smartphones

Sony is rumoured to be developing a 20.2-megapixel Exmor RS camera with a Carl Zeiss lens that uses your smartphone’s display as its viewfinder. The same sensor as the Sony RX100 II.

The clip on lens has a built-in battery, Wi-Fi, and NFC, and it sticks to the back of your smartphone.

If this is true, it’s rather a bizarre way of taking photos. Plus you would have to carry a bulky lens everywhere.

Personally, I would rather have the Samsung S4 Zoom or Nokia Lumia 1020.

Sony investigates splitting its electronics and entertainment businesses

Sony Corporation is working with Morgan Stanley and Citigroup on the possible split of electronics and entertainment businesses, according to a report by Bloomberg. Two weeks ago, outspoken investor Daniel Loeb spoke with Sony chief executive officer Kaz Hirai about the proposal, with Sony’s board of directors starting a formal discussion on the idea around a week ago.

Sony’s stock has risen 8.2 percent since the news of Loeb’s proposal was reported. Loeb’s stake in Sony is valued at around $1.1 billion and he believes that splitting off the entertainment division will give the electronics division a chance to focus on becoming profitable.

Sony is facing stiff competition from Apple and Samsung, so maybe this split will help it survive or protect the profitable part of the business, should the electronics fail.
