sony xperia z1 review 20 640x424According to a report from last week, Sony had recently revised their financials to reflect a loss which is apparently quadruple that of their previous estimate. It seems that Sony’s mobile division is largely to blame as Sony’s low-mid range handsets aren’t selling as well as they would like.

Well according to a new report from DigiTimes, it seems that because of their recent loss, Sony has decided to change their strategy and according to their sources, will now focus primarily on higher-end handsets and will most likely be decreasing their ODM orders.
