Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

BlackBerry Storm prep papers show up at Verizon stores

Anytime there is discussion about Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1, you can almost guarantee that someone will chime in with “Yeah, too bad it’s running Windows Mobile.”

While there isn’t much hope at this point for anyone dying for an X1 powered by anything but Microsoft’s platform, that might not be the case for future Xperia handsets. According to Magnus Andersson, product manager for the X1 and winner of MobileCrunch’s Coolest-friggin’-name-ever award, the Xperia ” brand is not tied into any specific technical platform.” While he didn’t add which platform future Xperia offerings might run, there aren’t too many viable options to pick from.

    Interesting that this is a guest post from VMWare themselves. In light of the recent VBlocks announcement, I think maybe VMWare didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag that they were going to provide turnkey infrastructure solutions for unified compute. Couple this with long range DRS and you’ve got the ability to move instances (workloads) from say your private VBlock, to the Savvis cloud to the Terremark cloud. That’s no vendor lock in for the cloud services themselves, while leveraging what I consider to be the superior hypervisor in the market with superior management tools. I write more in my blogposts.

    […] Standards-Based Virtualization: Critical To The Future Of Cloud Computing Although cloud computing exists today, it has not achieved its full potential and has limited the possibility for greater adoption. This is due to the lack of standards which inhibit customers from selecting a cloud vendor without concern for lock-in and huge investments in proprietary tools, formats and infrastructure. […]
