The PSP Phone: Future of Mobile Gaming

The PSP Phone
The rumours that Sony was working on a mobile phone version of the PSP have been around for years. And now – well it’s still not quite official. but – fresh pictures of a prototype were recently leaked online. Bearing a Sony Ericsson badge and looking decidedly like the Vivaz Pro. but with PSP controls in place of the keyboard. it even had prototype software pictured on-screen. a customised version of Android’s Marketplace no less.
Spec-wise. it seems were looking ati Gingerbread (Android 3.0). a 1GHz Qualcomm processor. 512MB RAM and 1GB ROM. The screen is somewhere
between 3.7 and 4.1 inches. and the touchpad is rumoured to be multi-touch. so should support gesture controls. which would add an iPhone-esque dimension to gaming. True to the PlayStation name it has shoulder buttons too. Additional storage is via microSD rather than the Memory Stick used on previous PSPs.
Sony Ericsson and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe both refuse to comment. though the source – Engadget – claims it’s confirmed the story through “multiple. trusted sources’:
We’re expecting a launch at Mobile World Congress – keep your browser pointed to us on the evening of February 14 for Sony Ericsson’s press conference. to see if it’ll choose to compete with Apple in the mobile gaming market.
