The highly anticipated PlayStation Phone from Sony may not be launching/unveiling on December 9 as earlier thought. According to some new rumors, the PlayStation Phone is “nowhere near ready” which means that the device will take at least a couple of more months before it gets ready for release. A February launch around the Mobile World Congress is likely.
We have already heard about the device – regarding its 5-megapixel camera, 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 4.1″ WVGA display. Now according to the latest report, the phone may not be a PSP device coupled with phone capabilities.
What this means is that users may not be actually able to download PSP-compatible games on to this new device. It is possible that Sony could bring an independent line-up of games to this new platform. However this appears to be a rather expensive process since the volumes may not justify the vast line up of games necessary to make this phone a success. What we also hear is that the new phone could be marketed under the Xperia brand which could bring down the anticipation levels for the new gaming phone even further.
Anyway, none of these speculations are substantiated. So at the moment take all of these with a pinch of salt.
