Sony Ericsson is “gearing up for some interesting news next week” according to its Facebook wall. The company posted this picture today of a group of 70’s-style teenagers checking out what appears to be a smartphone.
Sony will be dropping the Ericsson name from its phone division at some point in 2012. The photo could simply point to the company growing up into a new one, or it could be a tease for something entirely different.
CES is next week in Las Vegas, and is typically the scene of several large product announcements. Sony’s photo may be laying to groundwork for a new handset offering from the manufacturer. Both a Xperia arc HD, and LT28at Xperia “super phone” are rumored to be coming from Sony at CES.
What do you think Sony has planned?
