Sonic 4 uses a Windows Phone

imageWindows Phone 7 handsets are popping up all over the place, including according to Windows Phone Metro in video games.

The site has noticed that the most famous hedgehog in the world, Sonic, is actually a Windows phone 7 user, if you can trust the clip published above from Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I.

The scene apparently shows up if you keep Sonic idle in the game for about a minute without touching any controls, leaving the bored critter to pull out his Windows Phone and listens to some groovy tunes.

I think from the screen shot it is also pretty clear it is a Windows Phone 7 handset, even if the live tiles are just a few pixels across.

Thanks Steve for the tip.
