Default Sony-Ericsson Waffling Over Windows Phone 7

"'We've done a lot of work with Microsoft over the years. We've launched a number of 6.xx products, but we made a decision not to bring a product to market in the first wave. We absolutely maintain to keep an open mind towards Windows Phone 7. We continue to engage in a relationship with Microsoft, but we haven't made any concrete announcement about when and how we would introduce Windows Phone 7 into the portfolio.'"

That sounds awfully like corporate speak for - "We didn't do that well with Windows Mobile, so we're sitting this one out until it's clear Windows Phone 7 is a hit". Can't blame SE for their attitude on this, as they simply don't have the resources to take a chance on an unproven OS, even if it does have Microsoft behind it. To be fair though, SE took so long bringing the Xperia X1 to the market, it was a non-starter out of the gate. And if WP7 does turn out popular, they'll be late to this party too.

There's also the case of OS-level xBox functionality built into every WP7 device, something they may no be so keen on implementing...
