Rumor: PlayStation Phone out by October

Recommended Videos

Rumors have surfaced that the latest attempt by Sony to make the PSP worth a sh*t involve jamming a smartphone in there. The word on the street is that a PSPgo with phone capabilities could hit the market as early as October of this year.

According to the speculation, the Sony Ericsson “PSP phone” would pack the Android 3.0 operating system and boast a 3.7″ to 4.1″ screen, a “long touch pad,” a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, a camera and a slide-out control mechanism as found on the PSPgo. It’s been described as a cross between a PSPgo and a Samsung Captivate. 

Sony itself has declined to comment. 

Rumors of a PlayStation phone have been around for a while, but this is the first time we’ve had gossip bold enough to name tech specs and details. It sounds like quite the pretty package if it’s true, and if the PSP game library merged with the Android game library, we might have upwards of TEN games worth playing on it!
