When we thought that Sony Ericsson has given up on Symbian and sticking only to products incorporating the Google’s Android mobile platform, there’s a news leak that shows that the company is coming up with phones based on Windows Phone 7. And it will come in the form of Xperia 7 and Xperia 7 Mini.
Sony Ericsson has been quiet, except for the announcement that the company is dropping Symbian OS and the Android 2.1 update for the Xperia X10 series of phones. But it seems like whatever they are doing behind our back, has just been unveiled (well, leaked. Sony Ericsson is making smartphones based on the latest Windows Phone 7, namely the Xperia X7 and X7 Mini.
The Xperia X7 will sport a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display (480×800 pixels) and powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor. Other features include 8.1-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording and HDMI output with Dhoby Digital Plus surround sound.
The smaller Xperia X7 mini will come with a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 1GHz Qualcomm processor and also 10.1-megapixel camera with HD video recording and Xenon flash.
