"We are continuing our discussions with other partners, including Microsoft, as part of our partnership with this company on the broader Sony spectrum.
"[Working with Microsoft] is an interesting proposition for us in the PC environment, and we continue our engagement with them.
"We are exploring this as part of our discussion in mobile space too. One thing is using the platform [Windows Phone] itself, and another is 'what can we deliver on top of it'?"
"We don't want to be a single OS manufacturer, I don't think it's a viable position in the long term," added Perron.
"We enjoy very much a good collaboration with Google, we've been working with them for a long time and have a level of maturity with that discussion, that's good. But at the same time, Google has a relationship with direct competitors."
Perron declined to give a specific date on when we might see a Windows Phone, stating that the discussions were tentative at the moment (and clearly have been for some time) , but given the steady rise in popularity for Microsoft's OS, it seems that perhaps there may still be others looking to launch on Windows Phone too.
