PlayStation Phone Is Coming?

Engadget has posted pictures of the forthcoming Sony Ericsson PlayStation hybrid phone. This phone has been rumored for a long time, and it looks like something at least made it to prototype.

According to Engadget, the phone should come with Gingerbread, and feature a Sony app store. It has a long way to go, but there is a slight possibility it can come out this year. Most agree that 2011 is more likely, but Sony is reportedly going to be surprising us quite a bit in the near future, so we’ll see.

The screen on this prototype is roughly the size of the Xperia X10, up to 4.1″. Engadget says the phone they have pictures of has a 1GHz processor, which the Xperia X10 also has. Looking at the phone one is reminded of both the PSP Go and the Xperia X10. This could be a hybrid between the two. Considering the PSP Go just dropped to $200, perhaps the phone is the next generation of PSP.

Having waited almost a year for the Xperia X10, it would be nice if I could enjoy it a while before needing to upgrade. However, this phone could very well be worth it. As news comes out I’ll be sure to cover it. You can check out more of Engadget’s photos here.
