VAIO launches a Windows 10 powered smartphone, which no-one will buy,

Its been an year since the Sony off-shoot VAIO unveiled its first smartphone. I actually needed to dig for the name of the first smartphone made by the company. Even after all that, the company is making a Windows 10 smartphone of all things.

Microsoft’s Windows Mobile initiative is on the ropes, but no-one seems to have told Japan — the country has already seen more new phones running Windows 10 than ever came out here with Windows Phone 7 or 8. And the latest entrant to the fray is VAIO, the company formed when Sony spun off its loss-making laptop division. This is the first Windows phone to carry the VAIO name: meet the VAIO Phone Biz.

If you were disappointed by the staid, plastic build of Microsoft’s recent Lumia flagships, the VAIO Phone Biz may make you wish you were shopping for phones in Japan. It looks like it might be a worthy successor to the company’s lineage of iconic laptops, with a sleek silver-finished aluminum build — VAIO is really emphasizing the construction quality and stringent testing for this phone. The screen is a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, the camera is 13 megapixels, and inside there’s 3GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, which is mid-range but supports Windows 10’s Continuum desktop mode.

VAIO will sell the Phone Biz from April from about ¥50,000 ($424) unlocked, and the company is also partnering with leading Japanese carrier NTT Docomo to include various applications and network support.

The Vaio Phone Biz will run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box and also support Continuum. It runs on Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor with 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage which can be expanded with a microSD card slot.

There’s a 13MP rear and 5MP front-camera alongwith a 2800 mAh battery to keep it ticking. The mid-range smartphone will launch in Japan next month and at present there is no word of a global release. Moreover, even with those mid-range specs it carries a hefty $430 price tag.VAIO launches a Windows 10 powered smartphone, which no-one will buy

With even Microsoft seeming to give up on Windows 10 for Mobile, this just doesn’t make any sense for VAIO even if the smartphone is just catered to enterprise users.
