Sony may release a Windows phone in 2014

If the news is true, then such a move might break Sony's current loyalty to the Android platform and it can also give Nokia some fresh competition in the Windows Phone segment. Both of the sides have reportedly held numerous discussions, with the Sony Inc. going so far as to draw up the designs for their prototype device. Any of the future products could as well be branded under the Sony's Vaio line, according to The Information.

The Microsoft's takeover of the Nokia's devices unit seemingly has not given Sony any second thoughts and talks have still continued even after the acquisition got first announced. But the report also noted that a deal has not yet been finalized and the plans could probably come undone if Microsoft Inc. and Sony Inc. disagree over their licensing fees, the preloaded software, and some other topics.

A mobile alliance would not be altogether new for this pair, and the older prototypes also reveal that Sony has previously considered embracing the Windows Phone platform.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
