Sony Quiets Rumours About its PC Business




5th February 2014
Speculation has been rife recently about what Sony is going to do with its PC business. Latest unconfirmed reports are that Sony is expected to close its PC business or sell off its Vaio Business to a competitor.

Sony Statement
This speculation has led to Sony releasing two statements in recent days to try and stifle the noise being created. The first, released on their website on February 1st 2014 quotes:

"A press report on February 1, 2014 stated that Sony Corporation ("Sony") is discussing with Lenovo Group ("Lenovo") the possible establishment of a joint venture for the PC business. As Sony has announced previously, Sony continues to address various options for the PC business, but the press report on a possible PC business alliance between Sony and Lenovo is inaccurate."

Saturday...
A press release on a Saturday, being so short and to the point says to us that Sony is indeed rather miffed at all the speculation. However with millions of PC customers worldwide you cannot really blame people for wondering if the support for their newest PC addition will still be there by the end of the year. After all when a PC business does close, the ability for customers to get repairs falters and upgrades usually become non existent.

More Speculation
This first statement didn't stop the speculation however, if anything it was like trying to extinguish a fire with petrol. More rumours and a second press release from Sony this morning (5th Feb 2014):

"Press reports on February 4-5, 2014 stated that Sony Corporation ("Sony") is discussing with Japan Industrial Partners Inc. (JIP) to establish a new company for Sony's PC business in Japan. Sony has made no announcement in this regard. As Sony has announced previously, Sony continues to address various options for the PC business, but Sony has no further comments."

We eagerly await a real update from Sony, and will continue to ignore the sometimes laughable and equally disturbing rumour mill that is currently circling Sony.
