A Sony Windows Phone 8 handset on the way?

Tweakers.net is hearing from multiple sources that Sony is planning to release a Windows Phone 8 handset at the end of the year.

Sony has of course dabbled before in Windows Phone, including having a prototype Windows Phone 7 handset, and as recently as this week told the Verge that their commitment to Android “… doesn’t eliminate us from examining other opportunities.”

They did however say “…the market has decided loudly on Android… “and that they were “… very much focused on Android, and we’re very confident in Android in its relevance and its prominence in the market.”

Hopefully if Sony did decide to commit resources to creating a Windows Phone 8 handset Microsoft will remain involved enough to keep them honest and release a handset worthy of the OS.
