    I'm excited by the idea of getting Sony WP 8.1 devices. I want to jump ship from Samsung to Nokia for the camera, but Sony is the one OEM who could rival Nokia in the camera department. I'm in love with AMOLED though, and to my knowledge, Sony only has LCD technology.

    Hmm...if Xperia is to Android, are they going to use the VAIO name for a potential WP device?

    They didn't sell the brand name. But just their hardware division pretty much

    Just like 12Danny123 has said they only sold the hardware division off they can still use the VAIO name for the device which would make it even more awesome if they use the name for there WP8.1 device!

    Eh, I'm down with Nokia tbh but Sony hardware may be the company to at least cause my eyes to stray.

    Their xperia line has always been amazing. Camera wise though....im not sure. If we are talking 1520/icon there is some challenge from Sony with Nokia.

    If we are talking about 1020 vs xperia camera then no

    I'm loving the Z2 looks perfect apart from it not having WP on it.

    I wouldn't mind a design like Sony Ericsson Arc or the Arc S that was one of my favourite design phones made by SONY.

    I've only owned 3 brands for mobile phones. Ericsson, Nokia, and Sony Ericsson.

    When MS takes over Nokia, Sony would be a definite choice for me

    Odd news to hear Sony if they come to use windows on there phones. But I'll wait and see how they get on with hardware and software updates. To much bad history with there products from TV, video, Hi-fi, DVD all breaking after the warranty and there middle of the road approach to android phones with no follow-up with software updates and very quick to drop support . but there has been some improvements with there z line in phones and if they come with WP8.1 i'll keep my eye on how there doing and if they bring anything to WP .. so a no for me just now.

    I'm thinking SONY will include there services exclusively to there devices if they release a WP8.1 device at June such as Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited etc.

    Which would be great if they include music unlimited because I pay monthly for it.

    I'm a Microsoft guy through and through. But I have a great appreciation for Sony phones and Sony TV's. Make the phone happen, Sony! Might make me switch from Nokia.

    Edit: I really hope at least one of these is a high-end device with capacitive buttons and a camera button.

    I would very much enjoy a Z2 with WP8 on it. Even though I'm not a fan of large phones (have a Q10) that thing looks beautiful and all the Sony stuff I've had has been great.

    That would be cool, but the PS app better come to all of WP8.1, not just Sony.

    I think the PS app will come to all WP devices or it will be exclusive for the SONY WP device at first then be released to all WP devices same for the other exclusive apps as well.

    I was excited when the rumor first started, a little more excited as the news leaked a little more here and there, and I am still excited. Sony as a company puts out dependable hardware, and they provided great customer service in my experince with them. My son had 2 Sony Androids, and their call quality and durability was great. The one problem we had- a broken battery cover on his Sony Xperia Play- was replaced no questions asked and promptly.

    I will happily give a Sony a shot. If Lenovo does a "Motorola" branded WP, I am willing to look there as well.

    Fun times could be coming for our favorite OS if all breaks well....

    Remember this story: Sony and Microsoft reportedly in talks for a Windows Phone device in 2014 | Windows Phone Central

    Sounds like it might be happening. I don't know a lot of people who have Sony phones (being in the US). Maybe pushing WP could be a way to help gain more exposure in the mobile market in the US.
