More information on the Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone available
There is a lot of talk that December 9 is the date when the Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone is going to be officially announced. Now, thanks to an unconfirmed source, a few more details are available, including the rumoured price of the handset and some more info on its gaming options.

According to this leak, the screen of the Playstation Phone is described as "mind-blowing" and on par with the retina display seen on the iPhone 4. That said, it uses a little bit of Sony Ericsson's own Bravia technology that is present on some of its phones available on the Japanese market. It's yet unknown whether existing Playstation games will be ported to the phone or it will have its own line-up, but its games are supposed to be priced in the same range as other mobile games. The tipster who leaked the news says that "[this is the] the best gaming [I've] ever had on a mobile device" and confirmedthat it will use the patented Z-System gaming platform.

As this handset is not even announced, it is still unknown when it is going to be available, but the rumour is that Sony Ericsson is aiming for February 2011 release. The price of the Playstation Phone is expected to be around the $500 mark off-contract and this phone is most probably coming to either AT&T or T-Mobile (or both) in the US (see the no SIM message on the leaked photo of the Playstation Phone).

What do you guys think? Is someone talking up the Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone or we're about to see something of a revolution in the smartphone industry? Tell us now.
