Vaio dumps Android to launch its first Windows 10 phone

Vaio has launched Phone Biz, its first Windows 10 phone since it launched its first smartphone with Android OS last year.

As the name suggests, Phone Biz is meant for your business, using the Windows 10 architecture to connect with and share files with a range of Windows devices at your workplace.

Viao's Phone Biz comes with a 5.5" Full HD display, a Snapdragon 617 processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A polished Aluminium body sheathes its skin and there's a 13MP rear camera to boot.

As per Digital trends, Vaio's Phone Biz will get released in Japan in April but whether Viao will ship it out to Europe is something the company hasn't spoken about yet. As per the Phone Biz' product description in Viao's Japanese website, the phone supports Windows 10 Continuum, a feature which turns smartphones into desktops when connected to larger screens. All Windows 10 mobile apps can work equally well on the smartphone screen as well as larger screens where the smartphones are docked.

Viao's Phone Biz will cost around £292 when it will get released in Japan in April. In terms of specs and performance, it is comparable to the just launched Honor 5X or Lumia 640 XL smartphones.
