So, a prototype of a PlayStation PSP Phone. Is it real? Will it really happen?
The tech blog Engadget produced the picture above, along with the following specs:
1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 chip
512MB of RAM
1GB of ROM
Android 3.0 Gingerbread operating system
Screen size in the 3.7 to 4.1 inch range
Multitouch touchpad (that’s it between the two sets of direction controls on the bottom section of the slide-out section
Engadget stand by the veracity of the pictures and the information, which comes not from tipsters, but from “people much more closely connected to the project”, a project apparently named ‘Zeus’. “Multiple, trusted sources” says Engadget.
So what do you think? I’m of the mind this is a product long overdue, and if done well, it will sell well. Are you sensing a ‘but’ coming? Here it is. The Sony PSPgo is a terrific little games device, but it is overpriced. So Sony getting the hardware right is a fair chance. Sony getting the hard sell right… that’s not so clear cut.
