VAIO surprisingly entering the smartphone market

VAIO surprisingly entering the smartphone market

It has been little over a year since Sony sold off its VAIO PC business to Japan Industrial Partners in an attempt to gird up its loins and focus on its core products (though it may repeat that process again soon).
