Sony’s smartphone shipments dropped 50% last year

It's no secret that Sony's mobile division has been struggling for years.

Samsung published its third-quarter financials yesterday, and results are mixed. Although profits and revenue are up (both year over year and quarter over quarter), the mobile division continues the decline set last quarter.
