Back in August, we reported that Sony Ericsson was working with Google to develop an Android powered PlayStation phone. The gaming smartphone was rumoured to have a “3.7 4.1 inch touchscreen display with a WVGA resolution, and a landscape slider with gaming controls”. Now, first images of the phone have emerged (courtesy of Engadget) that confirms most of the rumors.
The leaked images are mostly in line with the mockup that was released earlier. The PlayStation phone will have a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM865 processor, 512 MBs of RAM, 1 GB of ROM, and will probably run on Android Gingerbread (Android 3.0). It will also have a front facing camera (visible in the first picture), and support microSD cards.
Engadget was told that the software is still very buggy, making a 2010 release unlikely. It’s also worth considering that Sony Ericsson has a horrible track record when it comes to delivering updates and launching products on time.
