Sony Ericsson has been rumored to be working on a smartphone for gamers for quite some time now and from what we hear, the device could be launching as early as October of this year. The latest rumor comes from Engadget and the website has some pretty juicy news to share.
Firstly, the Sony Ericsson Playstation phone could be some sort of a cross between the Samsung Galaxy S and a PSPgo. That is, the device could be a slider phone that will contain a D-Pad like analog gaming controls in place of the regular QWERTY keyboard. In other words, slide-out and you have a PSPgo and slide the control in and you have a touchscreen phone.
Apart from this, the device is expected to come with Gingerbread – Android 3.0 and could be branded as an Xperia to start with though an independent Playstation phone is also very likely. Other rumored features on the phone include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.7 or 4.1 inches WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera and 3D gaming is not ruled out.
Sounds exciting, isn’t it?
