We know Sony plans to launch a Windows Phone at some point this year, and now we have an indication such device could be unveiled during the summer. According to senior editor at the Verge Tom Warren, the Japanese company’s first smartphone with Microsoft’s mobile platform will debut in July, making it ready for the back to school shopping craze.
Sony’s very own Pierre Perron recently said that they are in “discussions with other partners, including Microsoft,” as part of the partnership on the “broader Sony spectrum.”
That’s a somewhat vague statement that doesn’t mean much. Still, if Sony does plan to diversify its portfolio and offer Windows Phones, it will likely want to hurry up and get a piece of the market before Nokia and Samsung completely conquer it.
It’s important to note that Sony has already produced Windows Phones in the past, though those models were never released to the consumers. Hopefully things will change this time round…
