How about Sony will make its own OS for its bigtime smartphones, tablets, laptops etc. and leave Android OS forever? Since they have their owned well-known TradeMarks such as WALKMAN, CYBERSHOT, BRAVIA, PlayStation, and a lot more...they have also their own Market for apps.....how about that? Maybe that's a big leap for Sony Industry...and a big "BOOM" to its competitors!.....MAKE.BELIEVE
Sony rocks! They have been learning their lessons. They have a few premium phones for 2013. Xperia Z is just the begining. Firefox OS will be in their entry level phones. They may also release a windows phone. Now Im hoping that they release a windows 8 in the xperia z tablet body. I will buy it
Sony can make firefox but i guess it's sort of dependent on cloud-based apps. Not good for places where data plan is expensive. Android is the best for now. Maybe windows phone also? And they should make more waterproof phones but pls make really good camera on phones. The exmor thingy is getting abused and will not do any good for the trademark.
Why so many anonymous here and there? Is he paid for so many posts? He is so lucky being so free.
Sony should also have windows. And nake less boxier designs as they are difficult to handle

Anonymous, 27 Feb 2013Looks like all is not well in Android land. ZTE and now Sony having Firefox OS announcements, ... moreLol. It's not a replacement for Android. Look at it, it need years and years to grow into a full smartphone os. But it's exactly what I want for a low end phone, it's like a feature phone replacement. The html5 app platform is genius and I believe Android will soon support those apps as well.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2013And WP7.8 was made by MS flops. That guy is" from China with no clue". I also had n95 8gb and it didn't do crap except eating the battery in no time at all. What a useless brick.
Looks like all is not well in Android land. ZTE and now Sony having Firefox OS announcements, and Google boss calling Samsung a threat to Android. Android fanboys kept denying, but now the truth is revealing itself:

The damned about Sony is that they don't sell their stuff ch... moreStrange then that xperia U been the undisputed champ in budget dual core Android. I think you don't know anything about xperia. Or about Sony. Or about much else. How can WP8 be an alternative to an open html5 based system? So clueless you are.
Plus, WP8 is gonna flop, the unstable behavior makes it useless even for business users, freeze and shutdowns may be fun for you but it's not a desired feature for most buyers.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2013WP8 is a totally different story, Firefox is for budget phones, think of it as a feature phone... moreYou do know that it's Sony right? The damned about Sony is that they don't sell their stuff cheap. So, how much is this phone gonna be to be considering as a budget phone? And if I'm not mistaking that Sony already has some low end cheap android phones that selling directly from their website [ Sony dot com US ] and its a unlocked phone too. It's around 169.99 and if its on sell its 149.99. So, here's the next question, how much is Sony gonna sell this smartphone for? Lessons than 100bucks? Or 50bucks? If no, then it's failed. P.S. isn't Nokia just deliver 2 cheap wp 8 phones from the lumia line last week? The 520 its less than 200bucks as gsma said.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2013Funny how you nokia fans ditch os a new os alternative. While infact nokia's os has a history ... moreFlop eh! You're funny. I use to own a N95 8GB, I don't remember not being able to done what I want and what I need with it. It can do and done everything that I need and anything that I want as what a phone for. And hey, I said I wanted to [ TRY ] not to ditch anything. Also do remember apple was never a phone maker or cellphone OS maker and then their created iOS and now millions of sheet following them, so if apple able to deliver. MS can too. A big Guy behind WP 8 is MS, you think that they will let it die?
tee.jay, 26 Feb 2013U own a galaxy s3 and u want to own one of the lumias..... Joke of the dayJoke of the day eh! You're funny. Why force yourself to use only one OS or device. It's always okay to try different stuff. I've used ios, android and old Symbian and I would love to try a WP 8 device from Nokia. I guess you can say I have a thing for Nokia cause my first phone is the Nokia N95 8GB. So now tell me, how's that a joke of the day when I got SSGS 3 but wanted to try a lumia?

Sony always said they had alternatives and do you remember they even had a WWP7 prototype.
Firefox OS seems to need less specs so probably it's better suited for low end phones than android.
