Sony Ericsson to reveal PlayStation phone in February?
February might well be the date when we will see the first PlayStation phone as Bert Nordberg, Sony Ericsson's CEO, was optimistic about the launch of a gaming-oriented phone. Add to that Nordberg's ambitions to make a lot of “noise” at the MWC in Barcelona and you get the picture. “There's a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere”, Sony Ericsson CEO maneuvered questions like a politician when asked about the much rumored PlayStation phone.

It is still not clear whether a PlayStation phone is actually coming out, but recent rumors suggested that an Android device with PlayStation functionality might carry Sony Ericsson's Xperia brand "Gaming, including content, is a very interesting proposition", Nordberg added when asked about diversifying the company's lineup.

Smartphone titles are gaining momentum due to the smartphone platforms' popularity and the cheap price. Sony Ericsson cannot be missing that. It still has to negotiate rights with game publishers to get it done, but as Nordberg said, “the future might be brighter”. We certainly hope so.

This sounds cool, but Sony's phones have not fared well in the past. Here is hoping that this can be a top-tier Android phone with Playstation functionality built-in.
