According to the executive, purchasing Ericsson share from Sony Ericsson will help the company improve on its position drastically as the hard-core technological assets like applications, services and hardware are now being developed by the company itself and that will give it a competitive advantage.

Dennis also said that the displays produced for Sony's TV business are now optimized for mobile and Sony Mobile it getting early access to its parent company's camera sensors.

Sony Mobile's target seems to be a bit ambitious, but with great smartphones like Xperia Z1, the company has a decent chance to break into top three. However, a lot depends on how well the company's marketing department manages the promotion of the devices.
