Late last year Sony Ericsson moved its headquarters to Lund, Sweden from London and now just six months later Sony Mobile plans to move HQ again. This time Sony Mobile will move its headquarters to Japan and expects the move to take place on 1st October 2012.
Sony Mobile already has a large base in Lund and it’s unclear at this stage exactly which functions will be moving across. We would imagine that the development teams would remain in Lund, but nothing is certain right now. It would be sad to lose the influence of the Lund Sony Mobile teams, so let’s hope this isn’t a wholesale move.
