Early this year, pictures of a Sony Ericsson Windows Phone
prototype came to light. The device was a side-sliding model that was similar to the "Julie" model that reared its head back in 2010
. Despite the circulation of pictures of a prototype, "Julie" was never released
and the joint venture ended its days focusing on Android models. Now that Sony has bought out its former partner, words is circulating again about a Windows Phone model for Sony, this time thanks to Tweakers.net
The story now is that Sony is working on a smartphone that will be launched later this year with Windows Phone 8 installed
. This is one of those times when you need to see it to believe it, and since the rumored device isn't expected to see sunshine for months, it could be some time before we are inundated with leaks about it. Until we see differently, (or different, as Apple would say) it's Android for Sony.
