Feature Phones

It may not have been their intention, but it’s definitely a clear indicator. By purchasing Ericsson’s half of the phone deal and announcing plans to move towards a smartphone-only model, Sony has unofficially declared the death of feature phones.

It’s a trend that is likely to continue to hit other manufacturers.

Sony’s president and CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, said it simply, “We’re phasing out feature phones.”

Who’s next?
