    [​IMG]Sony Ericsson has released its first quarter results (three months to 31 March 2011), reporting a continuing trend of its Android-based smartphones driving profitability. Android phones represented 60% of total sales during Q1. The company claims its share of smartphones has doubled year-on-year (5% in units and approximately 3% in value).
    The number of units shipped during Q1 was 8.1 million, down 23 percent over last year, however this is unsurprising given no new hardware launches. Sales were down by 19 percent at €1.1bn. We would expect a turnaround in Q2 given that the Xperia arc and Xperia PLAY launched at the end of March. In the statement, Sony Ericsson also confirmed that it has seen some disruption in its supply chain following the Japan earthquake.
