Sony is still considering Windows RT, looking to find right time
Sony is one of the few companies that is betting all of its chips on Android in mobile, and now the Japanese company clarified that it is still considering using Windows RT, but that depends on whether or not Sony will find the right time spot.

Sony ARM-based Windows RT products are possible in the future, according to a Sony spokesperson at a company event in Tokyo.

So far, we know about a handful of company bringing tons of new Windows 8/RT-based devices, so it might just be that Sony prefers to keep its focus on Android for the time being, while Microsoft’s platform establishes itself.

YES...........please focus on android sony! PLEASE..........focus on your "naming" to be specific, as well as continuing to build off of what you are doing with the Xperia T, TX, and V...........Get the minor things down packed like removable battery, better names, and keep improving in the specs like you did with the new xperias! Thats all........because it really is the little things that count the most to little mess up and people get turned away easy so focus on completing what you started with these new xperias..........quadcore nexus perhaps?

It's like betting, if you bet on every horse you will always lose. Sony has placed a big bet on Android and that's a very good one.

This is why Sony is struggling at the moment and will end up being left behind. They need to stop being so reluctant

folks the Sony VIOS line has a slider windows 8 tablet convertible computer and other windows 8 laptops and ECT but the prices on them are so high folks I think Sony marketing has lost their mind. I Wish them luck but HP and Dell already have them beat as far as the Price of full Windows 8 tablets are compared.
