Microsoft has reportedly been in talks with Sony to bring a Windows Phone smartphone bearing “Vaio” branding by mid-2014. Reports also claimed that Microsoft can cut down on or completely waive off the licensing fees for encouraging the adoption of Windows Phone platform.

Now, seems the talks have paid off and Microsoft’s Windows Phone director Greg Sullivan has revealed to CNET China that Sony is indeed bringing a Windows Phone device in 2014 or even by mid-2014. As much this is good news for Microsoft, Sony may also benefit as it has not tasted huge success with Android. This devices could serve as a vehicle for Sony’s Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services as per the reports.
