SonyEricsson ends partnership with HTC

According to the Chinese Commercial Times report, SonyEricsson will switch its current Windows Mobile partner as soon as the company’s current Windows Mobile device – XPERIA X1 – ends its business cycle.

Sony Ericsson will however continue expanding its Windows Mobile portfolio with Mobinnova, the Taiwanese company responsible for imate Ultimate 8502 and 9502. Mobinnova, has just recently released their flagship device, a dual screen Windows Mobile phone, whose information can be found here.

The reasons behind this break up, has not yet been revealed, but one possibility would be cost cutting, since Mobinnova should be a much cheaper partner to work with. It does shows though a commitment to Windows Mobile so one, can only hope for Sony Ericsson to continue the great effort they did with XPERIA X1.

If you can think any other reason, why this seemingly fine partnership ended don’t forget to drop in a comment.
