Sony Ericsson will be dumping Symbian, promises Windows Phone 7 in 2011

Sony Ericsson is the latest manufacturer to join the growing number of operators that are launching handsets for the new Microsoft operating system- Windows Phone 7.

Sony Ericsson currently holds a 19% revenue share of the total Android market but according to its CEO Bert Nordberg, the company will look to Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 operating system after dropping the Symbian OS for its lack of “ecosystem” when compared to Android.

Not much details were revealed but the company said it would look to launch Windows Phone 7-enabled phones in 2011.
