Sony Ericsson abandoning Windows Mobile phones?

Sony Ericsson is planning to do away with its Windows Mobile range of mobile phones, it has been predicted, with the forthcoming Xperia X2 likely to be the last of the line.

The forecast that the mobile giant is withdrawing support for the operating system has stemmed from mobile phone journalist Eldar Murtazin, who claims the joint venture will shift its focus to Android mobile phones instead.

Writing on his Twitter feed, Mr Murtazin stated: "SE [Sony Ericsson] denied to support WM in future, X2 possible the last one WM device (one more in development but could be canceled). Sales forecast is bad.

“Next year SE will show 4 android phones, 3-4 S60 phones. I prefer HTC over Android phones, S60 isn't so bad."

Officially unveiled last week, the Xperia X2 will be powered by Windows Mobile 6.5 and will feature and a high grade 8.1 megapixel camera.

The Xperia X2 will also house a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an impressively large 3.5-inch inch WVGA OLED display.
