Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

Anytime there is discussion about Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1, you can almost guarantee that someone will chime in with “Yeah, too bad it’s running Windows Mobile .”

While there isn’t much hope at this point for anyone dying for an X1 powered by anything but Microsoft’s platform, that might not be the case for future Xperia handsets. According to Magnus Andersson, product manager for the X1 and winner of MobileCrunch’s Coolest-friggin’-name-ever award, the Xperia ” brand is not tied into any specific technical platform.” While he didn’t add which platform future Xperia offerings might run, there aren’t too many viable options to pick from.
