Sony Might Ditch Android For a Vita OS

PS Vita Event (19)

Obviously, the Android OS is in Sony’s mobile phones and tablets but it might not be far away when the Vita OS takes over. Considering the company lost €247 million last year, Sony’s looking to make a change. They already bought out Ericsson so they would have 100% control of their mobile division. Maybe branching away from Google’s “clutches” might be a good move for them. According to Yoshio Matsumoto:

“If you’re asking if we’ve made it in a way that’s expandable, so that it’s possible to apply to smartphones and tablets on top of achieving the high responsiveness we need for gaming devices — it is possible. That doesn’t mean that we’re applying it to smartphones and tablets at this point in time, but it’s been designed with expandability in mind.”

Sony has a tendency to try to pull an “Apple” a lot. What I mean by that is, they try to use their own ecosystem including proprietary devices and accessories. Of all the different manufactures out there, I think Sony has the best shot at doing this since they now make their own phones, TVs, computers, e-readers, mp3 players and much more. They have the hardware; now they just need good enough software. Will Vita OS prevail for them? Is it that good? Will it get developer support? What do you think?
