Reuters: Sony's U.S. gadget demand good despite rising costs

Reuters writes: "Sony Corp is seeing little or no sign of softer demand among U.S. consumers for its range of digital TVs, cameras and computer goods despite a weakening economy, a top regional executive said on Tuesday.

But Sony is having to manage pressures on margins that are coming both from spiraling costs for energy and raw materials used in high-tech gadgets and from pricing overseas product costs into weaker dollars, the U.S. official said.

"That's the problem," Stan Glasgow, president and chief of operating officer of Sony Electronics told a group of reporters in San Francisco, referring to profit margin pressures."
