Sony Ericsson NA President teases details

Sony Ericsson's North America President Paul Hamnett in an interview Monday (video below) teased plans for smartphones at CES. Although the full integration with Sony wouldn't show for some time, he hinted that there would be "signs by CES" in January of what Sony's complete control would mean. Among those would include PlayStation certification on "most" of Sony's phones in the future.

When grilled on the apparent drop-off in attention to the Xperia Play, the only official PlayStation phone, Hamnett didn't see that problem in practice. Without giving numbers, sales were described as "pretty good." The Android gaming phone had Sony Ericsson's largest carrier mix in the US and that there had been an "uptick" after AT&T joined Verizon, the executive said.

He wouldn't confirm or deny an allegedly leaked Windows Phone, but did reiterate the Android-first philosophy. The "primary" goal was to excel in Android phones, Hamnett explained. Windows Phone has Xperia HD, which is likely to be a headlining model at CES.
