Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone is pictured and is real
The specs are high-end with the use of Qualcomm's second generation MSM8655 1GHz Snapdragon chip (similar to the processor in T-Mobile's G2, but 200MHz faster) and the phone will be equipped with 512MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM on board. A microSD slot will replace the use of a Memory Stick slot and the screen is expected to range from 3.7 to 4.1 inches. The Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone will introduce the Sony Marketplace where users can buy games made for the new OS.
Will game players be able to get their thumbs all over this unit during the holidays? With the software said to be buggy, November almost upon us, and the joint venture usually running late to the carriers-a 2011 launch date would seem more likely.

512GB of Ram? Seriously? Dear Phonearena, you're fucking up.

I hope they optimize the software or put in a battery 1500 mah or bigger, a PSP phone will be useless as a gaming device

Well on the phone it says no Sim card so it will possibly be for AT&T in the US. And I haven't seen or probably haven't noticed a Sony Ericsson phone for a CDMA carrier. So I'll say ATT or T-mobile

G'luck with slippin' it in your pocket!
Still sounds funny that carriers get phones xD
People buy their phones at a phone store, and then put in a sim card.. screwed telephony system over there huh.. xD

They have to make the resolution better than the iphone if they want to compete in gaming.

wow... thumbs up :D
Sony likes to challenge their customers and that design might be quite unique, excellent for games, no more worries about damaging your keyboard playing GBA games on your phone (yup thats me :P)
lets home this is as good as it look

Does anyone else think this looks photoshoped? None of this sounds smart to me. But then again, releaseing the PS3 at $600 didin't sound smart to me either...
Either way, this does not look like the real deal. At least not to me... I guess time will tell.

WoW....what a great Idea...but the photo looks seriously altered. for instance, At the top of the screen where it says no sim card look close there is doubled text. Why would you have two warnings as well at the top says no sim card and at the bottom says please insert sim card...If I know there were no sim card in there, don't you think I would know to insert a simcard. Also if you look close at the d-pad you will see that the arrows are off center. And is gingerbread going back to the old 2.0 slide lock? Usually when you see a prototype pic usually someone is holding it cause they are taking quick pics of it.
IDK...looks fake to me...but will be cool if it's real
