Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype appears again, buyer wanted
There was a time when Sony Ericsson was interested in entering the Windows Phone territory with handset of its own. Obviously, that never happened, but in case you are wondering what such a smartphone would have looked like, the photos below will give you a pretty good idea.

This is the Sony Ericsson Julie – a Windows Phone prototype, which is once again being sold on the internet. It comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 4-inch display, and an 8-megapixel camera that can take HD video.

Yet this is by no means a smartphone to replace your primary device with. It runs a beta version of the outdated Windows Phone 7.0, meaning that bugs might be common, not to mention that whoever buys it won't be able to download apps from the Windows Phone Marketplace. One should think of the Sony Ericsson Julie as a piece of history: it would look good on your shelf if collecting mobile phones is your thing, but nothing beyond that.

Sony Windows phones will be downed like Nokia, because MS is changing Windows version all the times.

Considering Sony don't currently make any windows phones, your comment is totally irrelevant, and imo, windows 8 does hold a lot of promise for the future of Windows phone too

I like it. Would buy it. I own a lumia 900. I had windows mobile till 2009 when I got android. After 2 android handsets I went to windows phone tired of obvious flaws which google still can't get right. Every one who I let see my phone says it's way better then sees iPhone after 3 minutes of use. Some android people are surprised as well.
