Sony Ericsson has not been shy about their expansion into Android powered devices. In fact, some of their most anticipated phones, including the Xperia Play and the Arc will run on the Android Platform. High ranking officials within the company have stated that it is their goal to become the number one handset provider specifically for the Android platform, but that does not mean that they are not looking to invest in other operating systems as well.
It now looks as though they are planning on release a device for Windows Phone 7 such has LG C900, HTC HD7 unlocked, etc. The device, which had pictures of it leak, shows a slide out QWERTY keyboard, along with a touch screen phone that is running on the Windows Phone 7 operating system.
Windows Phone 7 is known for requiring quite a bit in terms of hardware, and the device which is only known as “Julie” right now reportedly features a 1 GHz processor that should be more than capable of running the Windows Phone 7 Operating System.
So, while Sony Ericsson has openly admitted that they are focusing on the expansion of their Android devices that does not necessarily mean that they are going to be neglecting other operating systems as well. As Windows Phone 7 continues to climb in popularity, look for more b ig handset manufacturing companies to release devices for the OS. Although Android might be the trendy choice at this point. Windows Phone 7 provides a very usable alternative that is well made, easy to use and is a huge upgrade for users of previous Windows phones.
It will be interesting to see if they continue to expand farther into the Windows Phone 7 arena, or if they continue to focus on expanding into Android. Either way, Microsoft has to be happy with the progress of their operating system which has slowly become one of the more popular options available for handset manufacturers.
