More PlayStation Phone Photos and Details Emerge
Images of the long-rumored PlayStation Phone showed up last week, confirming the dreams of many PSP gamers. Now more images have surfaced with extra information about phone-game system combo.
Engadget was able to confirm the PlayStation Phone is running under the codename "Zeus" and runs the Android mobile operating system. While the phone in the leaked images appears to be running Android 2.2 (Froyo), there are rumors of handsets with earlier versions of Android and even one with Android 3.0 (Gingerbread).
The PlayStation Phone appears to have an 8GB microSD card included and 512MB of internal storage. It's possible that might be expanded to 1GB.
Also, the PlayStation Phone seems to be thicker than other slider phones on the market, although considering its purpose that may not be a surprise. Images seem to indicate that it's about the same thickness as the current PSPGo.
As if the images weren't enough to confirm the PlayStation Phone, Sony executives very carefully did not deny its existence when asked about it during an earnings call. Masaru Kato, chief financial officer at Sony, responded to a question about the leaked images by talking about the process of making such a phone and which department would be responsible for the phone. Even if it's not a direct confirmation, it shows the company is spending a lot of time thinking about it.
