Sony Ericsson plans Android mobile phones

An interesting announcement came our way from SE today, they’ve decided to join that merry band of men known as the Open Handset Alliance.

In a statement that falls under the heading ‘extending their portfolio strategy’ or saving wonger on licensing an operating system, it’s an interesting move for them.

This now will add the Google developed mobile OS to their existing portfolio of Symbian and more recently, the Windows Mobile platform seen in their Xperia X1.

They’re now in great company with the likes of Motorola, Samsung, LG and Asus all swearing allegiance to the flag today as well.

Reading between the lines on the very little they’ve said on the matter today, they dropped a few key words that made us prick our already perky ears up.

They linked in works such as ‘consumer focussed multimedia handsets’ then threw in named brands such as ‘Walkman and Cyber-shot sub-brands’. Meaning they’re either being subtle as a brick in saying they’re working on an Android based Walkman mobile phone, or are just teasing us with snippets.

Either way it’s a much welcomed turn of events and we look forward to accessing the OS of their handsets with Linux root commands any time soon.

Dear SE,

Make Android phones (good ones), get rid of those proprietary connectors / memory format and start talking to bloggers… then I might forgive you and we can try again.
