Images are real, but phone won't be hitting shelves says mobile watcher.
The leaked Sony Ericsson Windows Phone 7 handset which caused such a stir earlier this week will not be released. That’s according to renowned mobile watcher Eldar Murtazin, who says that the blower was only ever a prototype.
Rumours flew after the photos were first seen, with Sony Ericsson having committed itself to making a Windows Phone before going all in with Google Android. However, while SE could still unleash a WP7 cell, this won’t be it.
Little is known about the prototype, other than its Xperia-esque design and choice of operating system. With SE’s new Android phones so sleek, it’s hard to see where this would fit in right now.
