Nokia and Samsung will pave the way for WP8-based devices, but Sony aren't talking about whether they should begin R&D on their own WP8-based devices, or just wait and see what happens first. Sony Mobile's Pierre Perron says:

Sony's strategy is one of openness. Microsoft is a Sony partner with the likes of our VAIO laptops and it's integrated onto our tablets. As far as Xperia smartphones go, Android remains the preferred partner, although Sony is not a single partner company.
