Despite opting to go their separate ways Sony and Ericsson still have a couple of smartphone surprises in the works with images of a Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype handset hitting the web.
Whilst the Xperia Play and Xperia Arc S manufacturer never officially confirmed any intentions to launch or even work on a Windows Phone device, latest pictures leaked online have shown a Sony Ericsson branded handset running Microsoft’s mobile OS.

Whilst the presence of the ‘Ericsson’ branding suggests these leaked images are fairly old, the clearly labelled “prototype – not for sale” handset has offered a tantalising insight into the array of devices that could soon follow the Xperia S out of Sony’s newly formed dedicated mobile arm.
With no information on the mystery handset’s specs offered up, speculation now surrounds a potential Sony Windows Phone handset release with the upcoming Mobile World Congress convention a likely launch point for any new handset set to land in the coming months.
