It's increasingly looking like Sony Ericsson's Android-powered "PlayStation Phone" is legit, despite the firm not revealing the device at this week's Consumer Electronics Show. Why bother, though, when random folks from China can leak details for you?
Branded as part of Sony Ericsson's "Xperia" series, the device is powered by a Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, along with a 1GHZ Snapdragon processor. Tech nerds will want to know that its being benchmarked at an already impressive 59.1fps, which could improve as hardware and software is finalized.
These new leaks also confirm "PlayStation Pocket" software, although it's unclear what the application will be used for. The easy conclusion to jump to would be games, but what kind of games? PlayStation Portable titles, PSP Minis, or a completely new line-up of software? Given the system's specs, it seems it should be able to play current PSP titles with ease, although the lack of an analog nub could cause compatibility issues.
