Windows Phone 7 models coming from Sony Ericsson
Sony Ericsson's fourth quarter shipments dropped 23% year-over-year due to a lack of new models. The joint venture is expected to introduce new flagship offerings in the first half of this year, according to DigiTimes, which explains some of the decline. It might be this dearth of new models that led Sony Ericsson to explore using Microsoft's OS. No information has been released as to possible specs of the Windows Phone 7 devices. Despite this lack of evidence, the manufacturer is interested in an alternative to Android. As Sony Ericsson's CTO, Jan Uddenfelt, said in September, "Android is definitely our focus, but we have not given up on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile operating system, although it had a bit slow to take off. But Windows 7 Phone is on the roadmap."
Whether it is "on the roadmap" or "In the pipeline", it looks pretty certain that some Sony Ericsson branded Windows Phone 7 handsets are coming to market probably sometime this year. Excited by this prospect? Let us know by giving us your opinion in the comments box below.

No one cares
The only thing we care about is upgrading ATT x10's too 2.1. If Sony can't get ATT to do that then how can we trust them to upgrade any future Sony phones on ATT.

"No one cares"..? Speak for your egoistic self-centered self. What's more likely is that no one cares about you not getting your update. I guess you got a bad carrier or living in the wrong country, everyone I know have recieved the 2.1 update long ago - even the one's having X8.
And please, don't talk about "Sony Ericsson" as being "Sony". It is two separate companies, and Ericsson is in it too.
