Sony Ericsson and Android – Piecing Things Together or Just Throwing Darts?

Let’s have a little bit of fun today, shall we? I was inspired to put this together after reading something from The Motley Fool yesterday. Anders Bylund’s article (Popping the BlackBerry Bubble) was focused on RIM’s recent earnings and the challenges facing the company. When the subject of Android came up, he threw in a little conclusion jumping that I’d like to expound upon.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to be a member of the Open Handset Alliance to support Android.

What do you guys think? What’s the likelihood of seeing and Android-based Sony Ericsson phone?
