The CEO of Sony Ericsson raised a few eyebrows when he admitted that his company declined the opportunity to manufacture the Nexus One.
Google translated’s comments for those who don’t speak Swedish. It implies that the CEO felt that the Sony Ericsson didn’t need Google’s help.
“It would be in itself an alternative way out to the market, but we’d rather by their own efforts on the important U.S. market,” Nordberg supposedly said. Meanwhile, the title of the whole article is translated as “Sony Ericsson refused to build the Google Phone.”
This could be a sign that Android doesn’t have as big as an appeal as people thought it did. Maybe Google is trying to convince corporations of the operating systems worth before the company can woo the consumers on a bigger scale.
