PlayStation Phone rears its head

console 102 Published by

The folks of Engadget published a couple of photos of a prototype of Sony Ericsson's elusive PlayStation Phone. The device is likely based on Android 3.0 "Gingerbread" and features a custom Sony Marketplace that enables you to purchase and download games.

The device snapped up top (and in our gallery below) is sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (a chip similar to the one found in the G2, but 200MHz faster), 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is in the range of 3.7 to 4.1 inches. Looking almost identical to the mockup we hit you with this summer, the handset does indeed have a long touchpad in the center which is apparently multitouch, and you can see in the photos that it's still bearing those familiar PlayStation shoulder buttons. For Sony buffs, you'll be interested to know that there's no Memory Stick slot here, but there is support for microSD cards.
