Sony Ericsson waiting for Windows Phone to take off before jumping in

sewp7At Sony Ericsson’s annual Business Innovations Forum at Stanford yesterday Jan Uddenfeldt, chief technology officer and head of Sony Ericsson Silicon Valley told attendees Android would remain their focus, mentioning they would only produce a Windows Phone 7 handset if the OS takes off.

The struggling company was counting on a series of Android Xperia handsets to triple its US market share. The company only made 11 million Euro profit in the last quarter on 8.1 million handsets shipped.

Sony Ericsson was originally a Windows phone 7 launch partner, and prototype handsets by the company has been leaked, but it appears the OEM will sit out the Windows Phone 7 revolution at least for now.
