Windows Mobile scores big win with Sony Ericsson

Posted by Brier Dudley

Microsoft is announcing a lot of things at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, but a clear highlight is today's news that Sony Ericsson has chosen Windows Mobile for a line of smartphones that it's debuting at the conference.

Sony's showing the first model -- a touchscreen with a slideout keyboard and 3 megapixel camera -- that will go on sale in the holiday season.

Of the top five phone manufacturers -- Samsung, Motorola, LG, Nokia and Sony Ericsson -- four are now making Windows Mobile phones and all five are using at least some Microsoft technology, noted Scott Rockfeld, group product manager for the Mobile Communications Business.
