Sony Ericsson never brought to the market a smartphone running under Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system, although it did have Windows Mobile-based phones available for purchase.
However, the company was indeed working on such a smartphone, which emerged into the wild once again, under the codename of Julie. It is the same device that was leaked online during the past few years, featuring a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a 4-inch touchscreen display, along with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with HD video recording capabilities.
The handset still runs under a beta release of Windows Phone 7, and seems more like a collection item than an actually usable phone. According to Windows Phone Italy, the prototype is actually up for sale, and those who are interested in grabbing it should head over to the website to learn more on the matter.
