The Windows Phone platform has been receiving great reviews from many respected sources since its launch. With a new update to the platform (Mango) having been rolled out, the OS is continuing to expand its feature set and is battling iOS and Android on nearly every front.
Despite this, CEO of Sony Ericsson, Bert Nordberg, has stated that his company isn’t ready to support Windows Phone. He even went as far to say that Android is still a better OS, which shouldn’t surprise many as the smartphone OS is one of their cash cows at the moment. But if you are a fan of Sony Ericsson hardware, there may be hope that the company could support Windows Phone in the future. In a quote from the Wall Street Journal (via Phonescoop), the CEO states,
"At this point I wouldnt feel comfortable investing in a platform that isnt as good as the one that we currently use," said Nordberg. "Therefore we have remained with Android, but I am quite curious about Windows Phone. However, our Android strategy has been successful and the best choice we could have made, considering the growth of the Android platform
Many chose to focus on the fact that Nordberg called out Windows Phone for not being as good as Android; this shouldn’t be a surprise as who is going to openly bash their own OS on many of their devices? But, the good news is that Nordberg did state that he was curious about Windows Phone.
Clearly the OS has gotten the attention of Nordberg and by all accounts he is able to get the company to release devices running the OS. While Sony Ericsson is not yet producing Windows Phone devices, the OS is at least on their radar.
