This is the new beginning for Microsoft to acquire Sony mobile division.
Sony do not consider a thing with Microsoft, there are plenty of alternatives Tizen OS, Ubuntu OS Firefox OS, Sailfish OS, you can also release phones with Cyanogenmod like Oppo, Cyanogenmod it's a self update and has plenty of great customizations and features.
Sony & Microsoft to do a collabo? If only this was playstation & xbox joining forces. Sigh, one can only dream :-(
Anonymous, 01 Jan 2014iOS came out way before WP8 and is very popular. So you can't compare those two OS on marketsh... moreSo acc to you, high marketshare means, its not good. Ok, lets assume, 3 years down the line if wp becomes no 1 in market share, considering your point high market share means its not good. So why do we want something not good as no 1 ??
Told ya ! Folks! ..and Im the one who pressuring them to make WP8 devices ..on fb Lol
rj23, 01 Jan 2014Having a bigger market share doesn't give you the guarantee of having a better type of OS. Log... moreDo you know the legacy of motorola? Do you atleast have any idea about the technology motorola has given? Have you atleast used any motorola device? And you are trying to compare moto x with 1520? What planet are you on? Moto x is a midrange whereas 1520 is midrange device. Make sense before baffling words out of your mouth.
Sony is my 2nd favourite mobile company after Nokia. I like this news.
Anyway, this is a good move from Sony. we have seen that onlysamsung is getting overwhelming success from android. rest of the companies are way behind. Sony can't get much from android. with Nokia out of scene and if ms fail to succeed Nokia, Sony will be the most selling brand on wp. wp8 will probably increase in coming years. Sony can get many goodies from wp8.
if Sony wp8 get PlayStation certified than we will get Xbox and playstions on single device. Just saying.
haha nokia camera app on sony phone watch that screenshot,btw nice editing
FromChinaWithLove, 01 Jan 2014You're obvious A wp hater and a ignorant One too. It's facts that ios and android came out ear... moreI guess you misunderstood my points.
I have never hated the WP phones or Microsoft.
The problem with WP phone is just simply no good enough.
Microsoft needs to work harder to improve its Windows OS in thier mobile devices like Phone and tablet.
It is not good enoghh just to modify the OS from the current Windows OS used PC. This has shown failure in their Surface RT & Pro Tablet.
It's baffling when people keep talking about Windows Phone OS not been mature! Windows phone has been around for a while now...if you wanna beat the competition, you have to come up with something better! WP OS lacks the very basics that consumers want! and it will continue selling their very cheap products to ignorant people
Launch a Blackberry device instead - that is what we need, not these other OS's that have security problems. OK. it wont happen, but there is absolutely no doubt that security is the issue for 2014, not naive obsession with so called specs, and the wonderful goolge play store with 10's thousands malware programs.
Jim Hart, 01 Jan 2014Haha obviously you are WP fanboys who always deny the actual facts in iOS and Android that far... moreYou're obvious A wp hater and a ignorant One too. It's facts that ios and android came out earlier than wp and so that they're more mature In some areas and more popular are no doubts about it. But, just because of your hated and ignorance and Claiming that no one buy wp8 phones, because you don't buy it. What a fool!
sony is voted no1 brand in android.. even though samsung have more sales of its phones than sony
nokia made 92% windowsphone share with samsung as opponent
sony being in competition with samsung from beginning of android ,it couldn't beat samsung
how would sony can get success from sony
Its great chance to make impact by sony company I love sony camera in the phone.
