Sony is losing interest in gadgets because everyone has lost interest in Sony gadgets. Obvious answer is obvious.

Sony has been asleep at the wheel far to long anyway. Tablet S is just too little too late. Their cameras? Eh. No real innovations in phones... I loved my Sony Z-phone. It's been a while since they did something memorable, IMO.

But the thing is, it's not doing well at all.

If they revamp and focus on that a bit more, I feel they could make some great phones.

They are just as powerful as say Samsung who is arguably the second best phone maker behind Apple.

This isn't 2006. Sony has been making money off of each ps3 since the introduction of the slim. (i believe the 80gb non-backward compatible model also)

The wii has always made money, i'm not sure where your info is coming from. (not sure on the x360 though)

I always felt Sony were very reserved in pushing it hard when Ericsson was their partner in mobile phones. Had they packaged up Playstation phones a while back they could have been at the forefront of mobile gaming. Towards the end of this year we will see where Sony truly stand as a mobile phone manufacturer as even the newer models not yet out were collaborative efforts. Sony will hit back hard in markets they have a good chance in, gaming and mobiles. TV wise the ship has sailed.

So they've recovered the billions spent in R and D and manufacturing on that cell processor then?
