After the Sony Xperia P, Xperia S and Xperia U we get a newcomer, that has a fuller name, not just a letter: Xperia Sola. This name was recently trademarked by Sony in USA and Europe, so we’re to expect an unveiling ASAP, maybe at MWC 2012 in Barcelona this month. We have no idea what this handset will bring, but I’m sure glad it’s not called Xperia SOPA.


Also, courtesy of the source article for this piece, the one belonging to Phone Arena I’ve actually remembered that at some point Sony Ericsson and Microsoft worked together. I had totally forgot about the Xperia X1, that was released in late September 2008, as the first Sony Ericsson model powered by Windows Mobile with a nifty panel UI. So, if this was possible back then, why wouldn’t it happen now, with Windows Phone? Some say that it would be weird to sell the usually PlayStation-certified Sony phones with Xbox Live services on them…

Anyway, as far as the Xperia Sola goes, odds are that it will be an Android unit, so there’s no point in worrying about Windows Phone and the likes. If you want details, know that the Sony Xperia Sola was trademark through filed applications with the USPTO and OHIM for the US and Europe respectively. I don’t quite like this name, but it’s certainly better than initials…
