Sony Mobile has revealed that it plans to move its headquarters from Sweden (Lund) to the heart of Sony Corp in Tokyo. The news comes with little surprise as many thought this would happen after the split from Ericsson, it’s interesting that the move has not happened sooner. The announcement of ‘what’ the company will actually move to Japan has yet to be announced, whether this is just registering in Tokyo or a physical move is yet to be seen. People are wondering now what the move will hold for Sony Mobile and will it affect the design of the phones, will it lose that Swedish touch? The move will happen on 1st October and although the HQ will be moved, the design team, which isn’t solely based in Sweden, will probably remain where they are.
