This Sony Windows Phone may carry the “Vaio” branding as well and it could serve as a vehicle for Sony’s Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services. It may come by mid-2014.

Digitimes reports that,

Through the cooperation deal, Sony Mobile aims to sell its WP8 phone to telecom operators in the US, while Microsoft aims to tap the Japan market in order to expand the global share of WP8 phones, said the sources.

Sony Mobile and Taiwan-based ODM Compal Communications have nailed down orders for 1-2 models, with an additional 2-3 models still under discussion, noted the sources, adding that order volumes for the initial 1-2 models will reach only tens of thousands of units each.

  • Microsoft will have a hard time here. If it tries to push its Lumia products harder, its partners might quite and if it tries to help its partners, its own products won’t sell well.

    • Kamal

      But that’s the only way forward if it has to grow the platform. MS is already seeing stagnancy to decline in its traditional cash-cows. So, a lot is ridng on how Windows Phone clicks for them. They have 92% of WP with Nokia. They will keep that going and will woo others to join.

      • But because others can’t differentiate themselves, that will always be a fear.
