I don't think they will use Xperia branding for Windows phones. Its already rumored that they will use Vaio brand for windows phones and I think its good decision. Separate brand for different OS means no confusion for customers and also they can recall Windows with Vaio brand.

It won't sell well. Htc WP didn't sell well to.... It is more Nokia that sells well for WP, due to well known publicity that only Nokia makes WP. Mainly Nokia users by WP..

This would be a sweet deal just hope M$ won't sue Sony for anything.

Let's say that this is a bribe M$ imposes on Sony: make a WP and we won't sue you. It's a sort of assurance... and I bet that others will follow. It's the only way that M$ has to draw other OEMs to WP beyond Nokia.

There's not a single tech company which could survive a lawsuit against Sony with rights to Ericsson patents. There's a reason why Apple, Samsung, HTC and pretty much every OEM pays Microsoft royalties, but Sony don't.
