Sony PSP Phone photos leak online, but are they fake?
Is this Android-rocking Sony Ericsson with slide-out controls the real deal?
Spy-shot pictures of the heavily rumoured and increasingly tangible Sony PSP Phone have been leaked, offering a tantalising look and the Playstation-esqe phone prototype. The handset, which has been officially debunked as fake by Sony, is rumoured to be in development ahead of a pre-Christmas 2011 launch.
Falling in to the hands of the Engadget team, the prototype PlayStation phone features a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, 512MB of RAM and a sizable 4-inch display. Although details are far from confirmed, the gadget blog claims that the snapped PlayStation Phone is likely to run Google’s Android 3.0 mobile operating system at launch.
With a sliding mechanism that reveals PlayStation style control buttons and trackpad, the PSP Go-looking handset is said to have scrapped the Memory Stick slot in favour of a microSD card port.
