Sony's Xperia Continues To Escape The Hands Of US Shoppers
Another Xperia handset won't be coming to the U.S., which makes us wonder how the company's doing.By Leah Becerra | October 5, 2015
With the exception of the mighty PlayStation console, Americans really haven't shown Sony much love in the past few years. But Sony hasn't really been giving us a chance to fall in love, either.
On Monday, the company announced it's canceling plans to launch the Xperia Z4v smartphone in the United States, citing "technical difficulties." This puts the U.S. behind pretty much everyone else — again. (Video via Phone Arena)
In 2013, when the U.S. was denied the option of buying a different Xperia phone, Sony's CEO said Japan and Europe would be the company's main focus for smartphone growth. And at the time, those two made up roughly 60 percent of all its mobile sales.
