Sony Ericsson's CEO Bert Nordberg will open a development centre in Copenhagen, according to media reports in Denmark. This means that he would love to seize the chance and benefit from the skills Nokia shaded when it closed its development centre there.

“Copenhagen has a better image internationally than Lund in Sweden. When it comes to foreign workers, I think it could be more interesting for them to work in Copenhagen, "Bert Nordberg is quoted to have said.


It is not just Copenhagen’s image that interests Sony Ericcson are after. The low Danish scientist taxes for foreign experts are also very attractive. Also Sony Ericcson is fully aware that Copenhagen has some loose unused mobile developers in their droves after competitor Nokia choose to close its development centre in Copenhagen. At the moment, it is accounted that around one thousand loose mobile phone developers are hanging around the city doing nothing.

“We have not taken the final decision to establish a development centre in Denmark. But Nokia's decision its Danish operation is seen as an additional reason to be here in Denmark,”  Bert Nordberg is said to have told news services.

If this happens, it might not be a big deal given that the distance between Lund and Copenhagen is not much but the fact that the Danish capital is more international than Lund in Sweden, it might be an additional PR for Sony Ericcson.
