Sony Ericsson Closing SD Operation

Sony Ericsson says it plans to close its operations in San Diego as part of a global consolidation that the cell phone handset maker announced today. The London-based joint venture between Sweden’s LM Ericsson and Japan’s Sony Corp plans to move its North American headquarters from Research Triangle, NC, to Atlanta, and consolidate its product development operations by closing sites in six locations—San Diego; Research Triangle, NC; Seattle; Miami; Kista, Sweden; and Chennai, India. About 1,600 jobs are being eliminated.
