Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer
has always been delightfully direct, and he didn't hold back at Google's I/O
conference: talking about Sony Ericsson with Eric Schmidt during the Google TV
launch, Sir Howard noted that the Xperia X10
is the best-selling handset in Japan
, and that "when you beat Apple, you're dominating -- it's the new definition." Strong words from a gadget titan -- we'll leave it to you to debate their veracity.
