PSP SmartPhone soon a Reality? (Android 3.0 OS)
« on: August 12, 2010, 12:51:44 AM »
It seems a rumour  is going round that a new powerful gaming smartphone is in the works by Sony Ericsson.
Googles forthcoming major update to Android is also rumored to be the OS.

Here's what we can tell you about the hardware: if you're a gaming fan, this is exactly the kind of phone you've been waiting for. The device is described as cross between the Samsung Captivate and the PSP Go  -- in other words, it's a landscape slider with game controls in place of the typical QWERTY keyboard. The D-pad is here, but instead of the small joystick, the device will have what was described as a "long touch pad" for analog controls, along with standard PSP buttons and shoulder buttons. The phone has a large display, described as being between 3.7 and 4.1 inches with WVGA or better resolution, a 5 megapixel camera that we're told might not be final, and it'll likely have a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU on board. The phone is mostly black with some silver highlights, and the gamepad area is white / silver in color. Apparently it's currently branded as a Xperia device, but it looks like it will carry PlayStation  branding as well. Those who've seen the phone say it looks "pretty damn sexy." The mockup above probably doesn't do the actual hardware justice, but it should give you an idea of what you'll be dealing with.

Hmm  I think this is quite interesting if true, Android OS has quite a momentum behind it at the moment. So with Sony's gaming know how, could this be the next big thing in the Phone world?
It Sure won't be if it costs around the same as an Iphone.  Don't be greedy guys, please!:)
