Sony Ericsson QWERTY Windows Phone 7 deviceBesides the prototype Sony Ericsson Windows Phone device that recently went up for auction – it looks like we won’t be seeing any more such phones from the company anymore. According to reports online Sony might be keeping an eye out on Windows Phone, but at the moment they’ve got no plans to support the handset. Apparently the company’s reason for not supporting Windows Phone goes along the lines of “because no one really cares about WP, at least for the moment.”

Sony (back then it was still Sony Ericsson) has previously announced that it would like to be the largest Android handset manufacturer in the world – so creating Windows Phone devices doesn’t really fall in line with its goals. But if Microsoft’s operating system becomes more popular, it would be silly for Sony not to cash in on the trend. That could be what they’re waiting for, though the idea of a PlayStation-certified device with Xbox LIVE is also a little strange.
