VAIO among Japanese companies planning to release Windows 10 Mobile phones

Microsoft wants to see Windows 10 Mobile succeed worldwide, including in Japan. The company announced that a number of Japanese smartphone makers will launch devices with Windows 10 Mobile. That includes VAIO, the former Sony subsidiary which is already making Windows 10 PC devices since its spin-off.

During Microsoft Japan's press event, VAIO said it would officially reveal its Windows 10 Mobile phone sometime in 2016. Specific details about the phone are scarce, but it will reportedly support Microsoft Continuum feature that will allow the phone to be used like a Windows 10 PC.

VAIO will be joined by other companies like Acer, which has already announced its Jade Primo phone with Windows 10 Mobile for a launch in 2016. Another partner is Mouse Computer, which previously released the MADOSMA phone with Windows Phone 8.1. The other companies with Windows 10 Mobile plans include Freetel, Thirdwave and NuAns.
