Handset maker Sony Ericsson (SNE, ERIC) became profitable in 2010 by focusing on Android (GOOG) smartphones, reporting full year net income of €90M, up from a €836M loss in 2009. Its Q4 missed expectations, largely because it failed to roll out new products. 2010's Q4 sales were €1.5B, down 13% from Q4 2009.
