Having failed to materialise at an expected launch event earlier this month the heavily rumoured Sony PSP Phone, known as the Sony Ericsson Z1, is to hit stores in April following a Mobile World Congress unveiling, reported inside sources have revealed.
Pocket-lint claims that “sources close to the matter” have confirmed that the Android powered PSP Phone is to be officially unveiled at the Barcelona based phone show in February yet “won’t be out until April in the UK.”
The unnamed source reportedly said: “Sony Ericsson is going big on this one”, adding, “although it will get a Feb launch, it won’t be in shops until April”.
A mooted Sony PSP Phone has been a key talking point in the tech world for a number of years now with speculation and expectation kicking into higher gear in recent months as a number of spy shots and reported hands-on leaks have emerged.
Having failed to out the PSP Phone at the rumoured December 9th launch in Paris recently, Sony officially launched a PlayStation app for both iOS and Android devices, allowing users to remotely track their PSN stats and seemingly quashing hopes of a PSP Phone arrival.
