Sony Ericsson Windows Phone 7

Sony Ericsson's plans for Windows Phone 7 may have solidified Saturday morning with a posting of what may be a prototype. The design on show is a full-size QWERTY slider with a large (possibly four-inch) touchscreen. The Esato poster didn't provide hardware details, but Sony Ericsson's distinctive arcing design and the presence of the WP7-specific emoticon key and navigation buttons suggest it's accurate.

None of the software appeared to be custom, although a prototype would be less likely to run special apps. WP7 phone designers have limited control over customization but can preload their own apps as long as users can move or delete them.

If based on the current generation of WP7, it would have at least a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a five-megapixel camera, 8GB of storage and at least a 480x800 display. Talk has surfaced of Microsoft updating its chassis spec to include faster Snapdragon processors and other features, but a rumored Mobile World Congress target didn't come to pass.

Timing for the phone, if still on track, is still an unknown. Sony Ericsson has promised on the record that it will have at least one WP7 phone in stores this year. [via DailyMobile]
