Leaked images show even more of the Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype

Leaked images show even more of the Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype
Just a couple days ago, some light was shed on the long rumored Windows Phone from Sony Ericsson, thanks to a couple of leaked images showing off the device in question. Believed to be none other than a landscape QWERTY slider, due to the slit found separating the device, it seems yet another set of images have been leaked showing us even more details with the prototype.

Although we can visibly see the Sony Ericsson branding in these latest set of leaked photos, it’s more than likely to bear only the former’s name with the final product. From what we can gather this time around, it sports a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard, which is very reminiscent to the one that we saw used by the “Julie” codenamed Sony Ericsson model from March 2011.

Moreover, it appears that this version uses a white and black color combination with its design, as opposed to the uniform black from the leaked images we saw a couple days ago. Aside from that, we can see a camera of some sort in the rear with a flash – and what seems to be the Sony Ericsson logo. As for the software, it’s said that the handset is running on beta software, but it seems to be working fine without any bugs hindering its operation.

Otherwise, that’s just about all the information that can be inferred from the leaked photos. With MWC being the next big thing in mobile, it’s just possible that we might see this device – then again, it can be scrapped altogether. Oh the wait...

Thanks Juddy!

I only see this working if the tiles and Windows Phone can work in Landscape mode. Not just on text messages and Internet browsing but everything. Very neat idea.

Xbox Live on a Sony smartphone? Okay this IS weird. Apart from that, I really hope they do great in the WP7 market if they choose to enter it :)

Maybe that's why they bought Ericsson in order not to use WP.

The announcement not to put out WP7 phones was done in 2010 when the company was still both Sony AND Ericsson. So it was done by both companies not just by Sony or just by Ericsson. But now that it's just Sony, all these leaked images of WP7 phone are coming out, so maybe Sony wants to reverse that 2010 decision.

Would be nice, but I do not think it is going to happen. This is an old prototype.

There's NO way Microsoft would let playstation on their windows phones. No way. That'd be like an iPhone having a zune music player.

please remember folks the windows smart phones may not be Popular in the USA but Nokia and Microsoft are respected names overseas Nokia will be producing cheap Windows smart phones for the Over seas market and will sell many window smart phones over there. Sony is a smart company if Windows smartphones take off in Japan and other places they will be ready to cash in on it's popularity and sell windows smart phones and make a profit. if LG, HTC, Samsung, and Nokia can do it, they can do it too. These Prototypes are made to give them information on how to make Windows smart phones. Microsoft wants Windows smart phones to play premium games so they can sell more smartphones. if there was a Sony App in the Xbox hub on the Windows smart phone that could play playstation games that would make the Windows smart phones a strong seller among young and old people who like to play games on their smartphones and Microsoft would sell more Windows smartphones. FoLKS Microsoft wants to save Windows smartphones HAVING SONY PREMIUM GAMES ON A WINDOWS SMART PHONE WILL HELP DO THAT AND MICROSOFT COULD MAKE MONEY FROM THE SALES OF THE SONY APPS
