HTC has ODM order for Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X1

Sony_xperia_x1_sliderGot a couple of reader e-mails buzzing about that new Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 handset announced yesterday at the Mobile World Congress. Specifically, folks were curious about this design coming from left field with the “skin” that runs on top of Windows Mobile. After all, this is a slick-looking device from a company that has no prior Windows Mobile experience. As a commenter or two pointed out, the device is Sony Ericsson branded, but is manufactured by a company you might be very familiar with: HTC.Digitimes confirms the ODM order for HTC and it actually makes sense in a way. When I think of a company that’s really starting to add customized interface solutions to a Windows Mobile base, I think of HTC and their TouchFLO, such as on the HTC Touch and Touch Dual. There you go: you ask and we answer! 🙂
