Sony and Ericsson have announced the consolidated financial summary for the third quarter ended 30 September 2004 of Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB (Sony Ericsson), the 50:50 joint venture of these companies.

Income before taxes was Euro 136 million and net income was Euro 90 million, which represent year-on-year improvements of Euro 97 million (249%) and Euro 28 million (45%) respectively.

"Sony Ericsson has enhanced its portfolio during the quarter with the launch of exciting products. Over 60% of phones sold during the quarter featured integrated cameras which illustrates our position as a market leader in mobile imaging," said Miles Flint, President of Sony Ericsson. "The quarter has seen us shipping a number of new products such as our first GSM megapixel camera phone, the S700, the new P910 smartphone and the youth orientated K500 series. In addition we also announced together with Vodafone the V800, our second 3G UMTS handset."
