Windows Phone 8 is right around the corner, and industry giant Sony aren't ready to commit to the mobile OS just yet. Competitors will launch a slew of Windows Phone 8-powered devices in November.
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.
