Engadget has revealed what it claims to be the first images of Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone. The images revealed are of the long-rumored PlayStation Phone by Sony Ericsson expected to hit the market sometime early next year.
A few months ago, rumors surfaced about PlayStation Phone, which was reported to be a hybrid mobile and gaming device with a 5-megapixel camera, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, slide-out gaming pad and the Android Gingerbread OS. While those reports contained several details concerning the device but there was no hard evidence as such supporting the claims.
Now the latest rumored specs and features are reported as:
- 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM.
- It will have a screen size in the range of 3.7-inch to 4.1-inch.
- It will have a multitouch touchpad, trigger buttons, and microSD card support.
- The device will be built by Sony Ericsson.
- It will likely feature PS3 connectivity.
- The dedicated market would be there to download games.
- The PlayStation phone and the PSP would be non-interchangeable hardware.
According to reports, the Android-powered phone is still a prototype and likely to arrive in the market in 2011.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe replied after widespread speculations and rumors as:
“We do not comment on rumour and speculation.”
A Sony Ericsson spokesperson also commented on the reports as:
“Sony Ericsson does not comment on rumour or speculation.”
It is also important to mention that the reported images have come under criticism from a number of news sites. A closer look at the top screen, in particular, reveals a number of telltale signs, such as a large amount of dirt collecting around the screen, as well as mention of ‘A’ and ‘B’ buttons on the interface, etc.
Let’s wait till Sony officially releases some info about its long-rumored phone.
