Ongoing rumours that Sony Mobile may launch a Windows Phone based smartphone have been given a boost from fresh reports that it is indeed working on such a device.
Citing two unnamed sources, The Information wrote that Sony Mobile could be launching a Windows phone as soon as the middle of this year.
Now that Micorsoft is buying Nokia, it is seen to need to expand the range of handset manufacturers supporting its WP software lest it end up becoming a single platform OS.
Microsoft has been reportedly in talks with ZTE and HTC in recent months, with the issue of lowering the cost of the OS being the main topic of negotiation.
