    On the other hand, having PS games there instead will be a bigger calling for all the Windows users that do NOT like or own an Xbox but do a PlayStation. And Microsoft's lack of commitment to Xbox Games on Windows Phone should be more than enough to see that Xbox games aren't definitely a selling point for WP.
    Xbox games for WP is the same for PlayStation Mobile games on android they both lack commitment and content. I don't see PlayStation Mobile being a big selling point for a SONY WP device the other services such as sony music unlimited, sony video unlimited, PlayStation app etc will attract the most attention and bring those users that wouldn't come due to these services not being on WP.

    Well, personally I've always rocked the Xperia phones that are waterproof. Their laptops were nice but overpriced for what you get, but I'm a sucker when it comes to Sony hardware. Especially the latest designs really appeal to me (not to mention the good music quality and decent camera's).

    If they start to make Windows Phones, I'll definitely toss my 8X out and trade it for something that resembles the Xperia Z1 compact or Z2!
    Definitely I took a look at the SONY Tap 11 and loved it the screen was fantastic (prefer it more than my Surface 2) and the kickstand I really like as well however it to pricey at 749 to buy especially when there pc division now sold if it goes on discount to 499 or less I would consider.

    Yes, that's true. Though we don't really know how things will be in the future with this reorganization of Sony. Their commitment of betting more on mobile and leave PCs behind is surely - I hope - going to mean more dedicated Sony content on both their smartphone and tablet offerings. Since they already have the smashingly popular PlayStation brand with them and on mobile devices, it seems to me like the logical step to bring those services closer together.

    But hey...that would also be the logical step for Microsoft and look what they did. So I'm not putting my hands over fire for Sony either. I just hope they learn from the mistakes of others.

    Yeah MS have messed up with WP and Xbox I see there trying to fix the issue but that looking to be an impossible task especially when there been little Xbox games released and developers like gameloft releasing games without Xbox, not sure what SONY will do I see there pushing with the PS Vita as much as possible however lacking on the mobile front they may start pushing mobile during E3 but I'm not sure at the moment on there plan. However with the success of the PS4 I can see a closer tie in with mobile so it may happen sooner the push for mobile and better PlayStation Mobile integration or they maybe put off by WP and Xbox unsuccessfulness and want to take there time with such an integration.

    I really like the SONY Xperia Z1 Compact would be great to have WP on it, I was thinking of getting it for a family member however I'm going to wait and see if they release a model similar with WP on it.

    Well...maybe. Though Sony is pretty good at failing to prevent leaks...the fact that we haven't heard anything worries me a bit.

    The Z1 Compact is an awesome phone. And the Z2 Compact will be even better, now that Sony finally got rid of those irritating "anti-shatter" plastic sheets they had over the phones that not only scratched really really easily, but also diminished the premium quality of the phone.

    Agreed, that anti-shatter sheet was a pain and the first thing to take off of my Sony phones if I had the chance. I understand the philosophy behind it being good (iPhones just explode into frag grenades when they hit the floor, as I witnessed yesterday) but the fact that it scratched so easily always turned me off.

    And yes, anxious to see what Sony brings, if any, in the near future.

    Those anti shatter-screen protector look horrible glad they have removed them for there devices.

    Because all existing WP devices have so little bezels, right?
    I have no problems with Sony's bezels. I've always found that complain ridiculous on Android. Technology has to go somewhere. And build quality too. ;)

    I am just happy that apart from the not-so-famous local OEMs like BLU and Yezz producing WP devices, the big guns (excluding NOKIA) like HTC, SAMSUNG & SONY are getting on board the WP wagon as well. More mainstream, quality OEMs on board equates to greater shelf space and eventually more mind space for WP as a buying option and that too not just on the budget spectrum but also on the premium flagship end. This will eventually lead to greater market share and better eco-system for WP as a whole! Isn't that the dream? :)

    Dude, I am cracking up right now. This is a 125 post thread. The title mentions a SONY WP8.1 by June. Your signature says SONY WP8.1 by June.

    Warren's tweet says JULY! And this is the first mention of it.
