Sony Ericsson Windows Phone 7 handset is pictured

We can't rule out a little photoshop magic here because usually when a landscape QWERTY is deployed, the image on the screen changes orientation to match the QWERTY. But let's go out on a limb for a moment and say that the picture is real. Anyone in the market for a Sony Ericsson Windows Phone 7 handset?

WP7 doesn't rotate in landscape mode when the physical QWERTY is open, watch the same thing happen on the HTC 7 Pro and the LG Quantum. This render looks like it wil have the keyboard of the SE Vivaz Pro, which is great...

Hmm i like sony Ericsson but this image doesnt do it any justice, Honestly why can't a phone maker build a phone as well built as an iphone 4 and blackberry with a windows phone 7 inside? All these android and wp7 devices are so lovely inside but not on the outside. Am i the only one who likes a quality phone with a beautiful exterior? Any suggestions people im currently veering away from iphone 4, just because ive been using ios since its debut in 2007

The Samsung Focus is purely magical. The vivid screen of Sammy's Super Amoled screen. Droid processing speeds with a 1Ghz chip. Sleek and stylish moreso than the iPhone in my opinion - with a polished piano black look, instead of a toy aluminium look. And it is lightweight, but sturdy. You can't ask for more! Unless a QWERTY is a must, the Samsung Focus is flawless. Besides it is a Samsung, and they've been having knick knack problems with software integration. But it is so sexy that I don't mind. Also knowing there is a highly supportive team at MS that work on these small bugs.

@alternatecreativity - I agree...nothing messes up a nice OS better than a terrible looking shell. WP7 is a solid feel even in its newness but this picture doesnt do it justice at all. It kind of reminds me of the old Samsung i760 PDA with its bulky shell. I do like the HTC Surround tho. Looks & feels like a quality phone.

This is definitely a pretty realistic photoshop if it is the case. The Start Screen does not rotate to landscape. The keyboard has the emoticon key (I think that's unique to WP7) The keyboard follows the regulation layout of WP7. Only weird thing is the IE logo. It's the background color in WP7 (i.e. transparent) In this one it's the IE8 colour logo.

I think its fake, If you look at where the charger is plugged into the phone its pracically flush with the device, but yet there is a big gap in the shadow underneath it. The shadow would be more or less continuous.

Its not real...Windows Phone 7 is going to become a NOKIA exclusive OS.. plus look carefuly at that keyboard...No raised buttons whatsoever!

If W7 won't load correctly with a landscape qwerty board, why not a "Torch" style vertical slider? Give up a little screen size for proper presentation? So long as you can have a responsive "pinch" touch screen to quickly get to the tile you want, wouldn't that be better? Or a Candy bar style about the size of the Droid Pro. Haven't played around with W7 much yet, but SEEMS like a no brainer.

So a Sony phone with Windows 7? I'm down with it I think it'll be pretty cool I like more competition so this will be great. But here's a question will it have Xbox Live and Playstation connectivity? If so that willl be pretty cool.
