Like many other mobile manufacturers that created Windows Mobile devices not too long ago, Sony Ericsson has obviously put the brakes on developing future handsets for the aging platform in favor of the rising Android operating system. In fact, the first two smartphones to grace the handset maker's popular Xperia line were none other than the Windows Mobile powered X1 and X2. However, things quickly changed as the X10 was announced sporting the Android flavor and the rest was history. As much as people would love to believe that their allegiance is now focused on one set path, rumors about a handset named “Julie” rekindles the manufacturer's link with Microsoft. The Sony Ericsson “Julie” is being prepped to be their Window Phone 7 handset and is rumored to feature a 4” display, sliding QWERTY keyboard, and a 1GHz processor. Just like how the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 managed to be their premier Android offering, we're hoping that “Julie” can follow in the same footsteps – but let's hope that there won't be a long wait time before it's officially unveiled to the time it's actually released into the market.
