Sony may be out of the PC business, but that doesn't mean it is done with Windows

Phone devices or maybe even a Windows tablet in the future. Hirai made it clear that Sony's PC days were done and that the company would be focusing on smartphones and tablets, but said about Windows, "Microsoft has various OSes, including mobile. So, as Sony, we will consider new product development going forward."Sony is a company that has the phrase "We don't comment on rumors" on quick-draw, so obviously there isn't a lot to go on here. But, Hirai did at least leave open the possibility that the company could make Windows
There have been rumors recently about Sony working on a Windows Phone device, and those rumors make Hirai's comment about as close to an admission of a Sony Windows Phone as you're likely to get from the company until such a device is officially announced.

VAIO hybrids such as Dou and Tap were great. I think its time to start a solid move in tablet division. Show how experience you are Sony.

Duo and Tap both are great example of new innovation. Why Sony why.

Would be awesome to live in an utopic world where you could get a phone (hardware) and choose out of the box which OS do you want to get started.... Im not talking about dual boot, or bootcamp, or emulators... Just OMs selling a particular device that users could buy and then decide what to run inside... maybe is a stupid idea IDK, just came to think of it

Who needs PCs and laptops? Big tablets, wireless storage / periferals

I do, and so does millions of people out there. Yes, mobile/tablet technologies are evolving really fast nowadays, but it's still years and years behind what a PC can do.

I predict that Sony will make Windows 8.1 Tablet/ Hybrids in other words Sony Windows 8.1 tablets will be ultra thin lightweight Windows 8.1 tablets that also have an great accessory keyboard available for a Sony customer to buy. Sony is the master at making thin sleek well designed Electronic gear. The Tap ii Windows 8.1 tablet is a good example of what they can do. By the way Folks -the PC IS NOT DEAD- A good tablet screen size ranges from 7 to 12 inches in a 4 by 3 or 10 by 16 or 9 by 16 size screen. anything above that is not a Tablet but is a Portable all in one PC. People who do a lot of business work. and People who want to want to watch movies or play high level Video games want a screen that is at least 23 inches in size. a tablet that big would AWKWARD to use and is a portable PC not a tablet Also folks a PC through use of PCI And PCI express cards can be made to get new capabilities. A Tablet is a fixed spec computer what you buy is what you and you cannot change or add anything to I internallyt except maybe a Micro SDXC card to increase it's memory.
