VAIO to release a Windows 10 phone in 2016
Japanese OEMs will launch Windows 10 phones
At an event in Japan, Microsoft announced that a handful of Japanese companies, including the former Sony subsidiary VAIO, will release new devices running Windows 10 Mobile.
The first Windows 10 phones may be presented in January during CES 2016 where we may see new models from VAIO, Mouse Computer, Freetel, Thirdwave, NuAns, and some other manufacturers.
Details about the VAIO phones are not available, but according to sources, the first model might be a mid-ranger supporting Continuum.
The event in Tokyo also revealed some concept devices from small local manufactures like NuAns NEO and Digginos Mobile DG-W10M. The first phone has an interesting wooden design, while the second has a 5-inch screen, 16GB of storage and Windows 10 Mobile.
At the moment, it is unclear if these phones will be available outside Japan. We should learn more details about VAIO and other Windows 10 phones in the coming months.
