PlayStation Phone Edges Closer to Reality
A PlayStation Phone from Sony Ericcson is getting ever closer to hitting the market, according to a new report.
Initial sightings of late-production prototypes of such a cross between Sony's PSP Go and an Android smartphone emerged back in August on Engadget.
Specs-wise, the phone has a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 chip, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and a screen thought to be between 3.7 and 4.1 inches in size. The operating system is slated to be Android 3.0, also known as Gingerbread , and will be Sony Ericcson's first phone to use this increasingly popular smartphone platform devised by Google.
Mockups of the phone depict it as a landscape slider with game controls in place of a full QWERTY keyboard.
Gamers on the go will have access to a custom Sony Marketplace, Engadget said, likely as part of the overall Android Marketplace, which is that platform's version of the App Store for Apple products.
