Software problems bedevil the outfit
For the second time this week Sony Ericsson's has had to pull one of its new smartphones from sale due to software problems.
The outfit had been hoping that smart phones would save its bacon in the run up to Christmas but it is looking like it can't get a reliable one onto the market. Early this week the Britain's Carphone Warehouse, Europe's biggest mobile phone retailer, temporarily withdrew Sony Ericsson's recently launched Satio smartphone because of a software problem.
Now Sony Ericsson has had to pull the Aino smartphone, part of the company's Christmas line-up because of problems using the touch screen.
Analysts say that the Aino and Satio are Sony Ericsson's key products for the final quarter and the problems couldn't come at a worse time. The company has days to fix the problem or miss the huge Christmas sales.
