Just in case you didn’t get the memo earlier; Sony Ericsson isn’t going to build a Windows Phone 7 device anytime soon. According to Sony Ericsson’s CTO the company wonâ€™t be making any products if the operating system doesnâ€™t take off. From a business perspective this is understandable given the company’s heavy AndroidÂ push with it’s latest smartphone’s, the Android PlayStation development suite and the Sony NGP. Windows Phone 7 has yet to prove itself in the market and Microsoft’s total lack of communication around sales can only mean that things aren’t really catching up yet.
Frankly who needs another OEM when even the current ones can’t seem to take the platform seriously ? This is the reason why Microsoft felt the need to “buy” Nokia.
