Sony is most known for their Android phones and the Playstastion, and you probably know that they are actually one of the few that never actually builds a Windows Phone since 2008 (or at least not that I know of). Well, all of that can be changed.
Today, Sony is actually confirmed by the source that they are considered to make a Windows Phone device. Although at this moment, this is just a rumor, but the recent comment from Pierre Perron, the head of Sony Mobile Europe, says that Sony wants to deliver more flavor for their Smartphone lineup by stating: “We don’t want to be a single OS manufacturer, I don’t think it’s a viable position in the long term… We enjoy very much a good collaboration with Google, we’ve been working with them for a long time and have a level of maturity with that discussion, that’s good. But at the same time, Google has a relationship with direct competitors.”
Also, he confirmed that Sony is in discussion with Microsoft about this matter, and also, he is suggesting that Sony is considering how to deliver a Sony Windows Phone in a way that is not mistaken with the Nokia Lumia line up; also, he states that the real question with Sony on the Windows Phone idea is, and I quoted: “What can we deliver on top of it?”
Now, this is all just speculation, especially when the CEO of Sony comes out and states that they had no plans for a Windows Phone at the moment. So, there is nothing to ensure that Sony will come out with a Windows Phone, but with comments like these, there is a possibility that we might see a slim, waterproof Windows Phone 8 device.
