More than half of America's married couples will tell you, breaking up is hard. Hard and expensive. After living in denial

to have cost €1.05 billion ($1.37 billion) to complete. The now fully Sony owned Sony Ericsson will be renamed Sony Mobile Communications, though a few of the outfit's already announced
children are keeping their papa's name. Hit the break for Sony's small press release.
