Things just aren't going well for Sony Ericsson at the moment: hot on the heels of rumors that Ericsson might be looking to split out, the partnership's cautioning investors that first quarter sales are down some 50 percent. That translates to a loss of between €340 and €390 million, which we're guessing will translate to somewhere around $500 million -- sadly even worse than last quarter, when the outfit lost $247 million. SE blames the poor showing on "weak consumer demand," but we'd say it has more to do with a lineup of phones that always seem to be too little, too late -- let's hope those planned Android phones make an appearance soon.
