After more than 130 years of phone production, Ericsson will soon not have any signature on phones anymore. This reports public broadcaster Sveriges Television today. The Ericsson label will be removed from the mobile phones that Sone and Ericsson have developed and produced together. In October 2011, Sony overtook Ericsson's share of the previously co-owned Sony Ericsson. When the new models will be introduced it is about "Sony's new smartphone".
The company LM Ericsson was founded in 1876 and produced its first phones two years later, in 1878. Ericsson's first mobile phone was a NMT-phone.
