SONY ERICSSON says NO to HTC for its next Windows Mobile based Smartphone

It is not a hidden truth that the HTC made the SONY ERICSSON XPERIA X1. But, due to some reasons SONY has decided to switch to some other partner “Mobinova” for it’s next windows mobile.

Although Sony Ericsson is believed to continue expanding its lineup of Windows Mobile-based smartphones, the company’s partnership with HTC will come to an end when the current production of Xperia X1 handsets completes its business circle, the paper quoted industry sources as indicating.

Rumor has it that the reason behind this is the HTC’s inability of making the XPERIA X1 available worldwide. Another reason is that the HTC itself is the direct competitor of Sony Ericsson in the market. According to me, they should have stayed with the HTC. HTC has vast amount of experience in the Windows Mobile world and they know exactly what the windows mobile market is all about.
