Sony Ericsson Planning Windows Mobile Smartphone?

by Reads (4,334)

HTC is going to design and manufacture a Windows Mobile smartphone for Sony Ericsson, according to a report from the Commercial Times.

The China-based newspaper does not cite its source for this, but if it’s correct it will mark a major change for this company.

Currently, Sony Ericsson bases all its smartphones on the Symbian OS, which it partially owns. It completely owns the UIQ user interface, which its touchscreen models use.

There’s no hint in this report that this company is moving away from Symbian; instead it seems Sony Ericsson is broadening its smartphone options.

The first Windows Mobile smartphone from this European company is expected to debut in the second half of next year.

There is no word yet on the features of this model, or what it will cost.
