Windows Phones from Sony still a no-go

November 17, 2012 3 Comments

Sony, known for its high quality TVs and PlayStation systems has yet to release a device able to compete with the likes of the Nokia Lumia 920, Apple iPhone or the Samsung Galaxy. Even though they have been on the steady path to failure with Android, Sony has yet to change directions and indeed has acknowledge that their current lineup is nothing to write home about. Dennis van Schie, Sony’s Mobile sales chief, recently was interviewed by Financial Times Deutschland in which he spells out the obvious which is right now, they simply cannot compete.

He states “We will create in the near future a flagship model that can compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S III,”. and later once asked about the plans for a Windows Phone added, “We have a good relationship with Microsoft and are closely watching the development of Windows Phone.. If it succeeds, we will not be caught off guard”…Wait, what..if it succeeds?… Yep, you heard right, if it succeeds…This displays the amount of confidence Sony has in the Windows Phone ecosystem. Their, “lets wait and see” approach may just cost them the opportunity to jump in before the market is full of really good offerings from HTC, Samsung and Nokia. The bad part about all of this is that a spokeswomen  noted that a model available to compete with the iPhone and Galaxy will be at CES and Mobile World Congress in the first part of 2013…Why is this a bad thing? because, so will every other company that has the know how to piece together a lithium battery and display. What Sony doesn’t realize is that there are too many makers of Android devices and not enough of Windows Phone, so if they want to compete in the world of phones they had better not only make great devices, but also be very original. Something that, in my personal opinion, Android is simply not….MBGW

    PS3 games are very good. Sony dev community Ok, They licence a lot of games. On Android they have a lot of competition, on iOS even more…
    The only BIG platform they could control it is the one from MS: WP (7/8…).
    If they will release a Sony WP PS3 with exclusive games before a MS WP Xbox … (As Nokia has Maps, Music, Games…) they could win… and rule the WP Gaming Platform…

    The Japanese tech giants are in trouble, like many industries. Sony today is not the Sony of yesteryear. But neither are Panasonic, Sharp, etc. With Softbank buying Sprint, be prepared America for a flood of cheap, crappy Japanese Android handsets. Not a single carrier here handles Windows Phone 8. And AU KDDI has shown no interest in updating the failed Fujitsu…the first Mango phone on the market. I blame Microsoft Japan just as much. This is not to say that the handsets themselves are not goo. Toshiba and Sony do make great handsets, but are you ready for a 3-D Disney Android phone? How about One Piece or Hello Kitty? That is the extent of their innovation.
