And even stranger than the idea that Microsoft would want to work with Sony on a Windows Phone (when the Japanese giant is perfectly content with its Android offerings), is the idea that the first smartphone in question could carry the VAIO (Windows PCs and tablets) rather than the Xperia phone brand.
So, there’s that, as well as the speculation as to what sort of design principles Sony would invent to be part of the Windows Phone group.
Remember, all smartphones that are part of major operating systems today are based on traditional designs around the operating system or the phones that came before it from the same manufacturer. But, it’s been years since Sony ever made a Windows Phone, and they surely can’t use any old ideas; it would have to be something fresh.
On to 2014, then.
