Sony Ericsson has decided to produce its newly launched Walkman Phone at its own facilities. EMS Providers like Flextronics will still produce some of the other models for Sony Ericsson. Sony Ericsson currently has trouble with meeting demand in Europe for its Walkman model due to popular demand, but the company denied there were logistical problems. Market research group Strategy Analytics, quoted by Reuters, said Sony Ericsson will sell 1 million Walkman phones until the end of the year. But sources close to Sony Ericsson said internal plans are for much higher sales.
