Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone to come in March 2011
The rumor mill around the upcoming Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone has already churned out the looks, specs and a video of the phone in action. Out of the few unknowns left to the imagination, we can now cross the release month. Citing "one of our sources at the company", ITProPortal claims that the phone would be released in March 2011.

The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2011 will be used to showcase the Gingerbread gamer, which, although internally known as Zeus, or also as Z1, might end up just being called the Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone. All these additional details make perfect sense to us, but the floated specs of 512MB RAM, 8GB of memory, and a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen don't really seem like top of the line for a gaming-oriented handset. Of course, Android 2.3 seems to be pretty optimized for gaming, so clever new titles, taking advantage of the enhanced graphics code and the native motion sensors support in Gingerbread might fill in the void.

True that the specs seem underwhelming. It should up the current gen's RAM to at least 768MB. I bet they are gonna need it. Although, the PS3 has only 256MB RAM+256MB video RAM, but they don't have a service populated Android OS.

easy way to fix that would be to ditch that clusterfuck OS.

I've loved my PSP from day one. This phone, regardless of its spec, holds my interest. I just want them to confirm whether or not my downloaded games can be played on this beast. That's the real deal breaker.

Considering Sony doesn't typically make CDMA phones, looks like a few people might miss out on this phone.Which may or may not be a big deal, since most sales come from Asia, Europe, and South America for SE.

Its a disappointment!!! I was waiting for google nexus s !!! other then software improvement there is NO hardware changes (was expecting dual core) then this PLay station phone... NO hardware improvements :!!!
I have an idea for both SE and Samsung... WHY DONT U IMPROVE UR CURRENT CUSTOMERS SERVICE BY PROVIDING ALL OF THEM WITH GINGERBIRD !!!!!!
now i might end up buying DHD or SGS
