Here is VAIO's new Windows Phone flagship

Despite its struggles, Microsoft's Windows Phone (Windows 10 Mobile) program could be getting a boost from a well-known brand.
VAIO, the brand born of Sony and then spun-off in 2013, is back to making hardware and they have just announced a new Windows 10 smartphone.

The new VAIO Phone Biz (what?!) will launch in April in Japan in partnership with NTT DoCoMo and will sell for 50,000 (about $420) unlocked.

Overall, the device seems like a step up from the boring, plastic Lumia phones of year's past (where are you, Surface Phone?) including an aluminum design, a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, dual cameras (13MP/5MP), 3GB RAM and a mid-range Snapdragon 617 processor under the hood.
