Sony Ericsson Working on Android Based PSP Gaming Phone
By on August 12th, 2010

Gaming has never been Android’s strong suit. The quality of games on the iPhone has always been better than those on Android. That, however, is set to change soon.

Sony Ericsson is reportedly working on a gaming smartphone modeled along the likes of the PSP Go and the Samsung Galaxy S. Here’s Engadget’s mockup of the Android PSP phone.

It will have a 3.7 – 4.1 inch touchscreen display with a WVGA resolution and a landscape slider with gaming controls instead of a QWERTY keypad. It will have the standard PSP buttons and a touchpad instead of the joystick.

On the hardware side, it will probably have a 1 GHz+ processor and at least 512 MB RAM. The games on the new platform will be similar to PSP games in terms of graphics and performance. It will run Android 3.0 Gingerbread and will have a custom Android Market application solely for the games.

Sony Ericsson is reportedly working closely with Google to make this happen; this could be the next big thing in mobile gaming. The iPhone has some really good games but gaming enthusiasts have always bemoaned the lack of hardware gaming controls on it.
