ST Ericsson U8500 in Smartphones shipping in China

Posted by Charbax – January 9, 2012

ST Ericsson U8500 1Ghz Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 is shipping in a version of the HTC Sensation selling in China with an integrated CDMA modem. Now also Via Mobile is shipping the U8500 in a 4.3" capacitive HSPA+ smartphone. The price may be quite a lot lower than other high-end dual-core smartphones, to be confirmed.

    I’m curious.  Didn’t Sony brought out Sony Ericsson’s phone unit?  Then why is ST Ericsson selling a phone? 

  • Sony bough Sony Ericsson off of Ericsson, ST Ericsson is another entity which Sony didn’t buy. And they only make the processors and HSPA+ and LTE modems, GSM and CDMA, they don’t actually do the phones except reference designs maybe.

    Oh okay, which explains why HTC is making the phone.  Thanks.
