Sony and Samsung, sitting in a tree…
If I had any reservations about leaving Sony when I did, frankly they are all gone now.
Sony has increasingly been looking to Samsung to revive its sagging fortunes. Samsung, long seen as a low-end electronics maker, is now being courted by Sony for its manufacturing prowess and innovative technology.
And with good reason. For the first time, Samsung’s brand is now worth more than Sony’s, according to an annual Interbrand-BusinessWeek survey of the top 100 global brands that was released on July 21.
The poll, which weighed the profits those brands were expected to generate, showed that Samsung was ranked 20th, while Sony fell to 28th.
