Sony may be planning to keep hold of the Sony Ericsson liquid energy logo for a while longer according to a report from TechRadar. Speaking to an unnamed Sony executive, they were told that it was important consumers associated with the two brands (Sony Mobile and Sony Ericsson), at least for the time being.
The executive confirmed that the logo will be dropped at some point in the future, but only once the remaining Sony Ericsson handsets have dropped out of circulation. Our understanding is that the remaining new handsets due in 2012 will still carry the logo, but the new phones from 2013 will not. Time will tell if that ends up being the case, we are rather fond of the icon though, so the longer the better.
