How Much Longer Is Sony Ericsson Going to Be Around?

Once upon time, Sony Ericson made the most awesome little cellphones. Lately, it's been trying to sell high-end phones exclusively. But the phones suck, and Sony Ericsson's moving less phones than ever, falling out of the top 5 brands.

Given where it's at in market share and profitability compared to everybody else, long running corporate troubles and slow fade to irrelevancy (see:wondering how to be a trending topic on Twitter), we gotta ask: How much longer before Sony Ericsson kicks it?
