What do you think of the PlayStation Phone?
Sony Ericsson is doing its best to get to where the joint-venture feels it belongs - among the elite of smartphone manufacturers. And common knowledge dictates that when someone plans to deliver a device previously unheard of, it's either a masterstroke or a terrible idea. As most of you guys are smartphone-obsessed geeks, we really want to know your feelings on the subject of the much talked about Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone.

Of course, it's too early to predict whether or not this handset would be a gamer's dream come true, which obviously depends on quite a lot of stuff that's yet unclear, but for now it would simply be very interesting to see what the predominant opinion about it is.

What do you think of the Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone:

It's a sign for a new era in the smartphone business.
The PS phone is something I want really bad!
It will flop.
Err... this PlayStation thing is all bollocks, gimme the Nexus S!
I would rather have Angelina Jolie.

This will blow competition out of proportion! I WILL BE GETTING MINE WHEN IT COMES OUT. I'm just glad i returned my out of date X10 cause it will never receive 2.2.

In a first glance by the name, everybody's thinking it will play PSP games, that's main reason everyone was excited about this phone, but sadly it won't cause Sony, don't know for what god forsaken reason doesn't want it to. I really hope this doesn't turn out to be another X10

It sounds good and all but if it comes with a 1450-1500mah battery then SE failed in designing a long lasting Android/PSP phone. And if it was the next line of their phones it should come with a 10 mp camera sensor at least.

crazy idea. may beat up iphone.. but if it has a hd cam. 3g is obv, and as its a gaming device with android so its BOOM! Abomination!!! if its google android 2.3/3.0..something around 300-500 usd it gonna b a killing machine..

There is a pad for android devices that gives you physical buttons. Probably wont be as nice. Regardless dont we all know exactly how this is going to shake out? its a sony ericson phone - the phone's ui and such is going to suck, and it will be great for gaming.

think about the uses... being capable of holding hundreds of titles on a 32/64/128GB SD card instead of cartiges, plus loads of music apps and many other stuff... they can stop selling PSP and sell this this may be a winer

Thing is no one really knows what z-system is. But apparently it's an android variant. It'll be weird to see android on a playstation device after using the psp and ps3 dashboards for so long.

Looks like an android lock screen but SE has stated it will have the Z-system OS.

im waiting for MS to respond with a WP7 with a gamepad. android with a gamepad could be killer, even without playstation support.

i think it'll be a huge leap for SE because everybody loves PS. its a great advantage... youll be a real gaming machine... not just apps that is time-consuming but you didnt get what you want. and coupled with android? thats killing everybody. I NEVER LIKED SE SINCE DAY 1 I HEARD THEM.... but this thing is a catcher.

Android + physical buttons for gaming = big success. The only problem is if it is only GSM, then it wont be on America's largest cell phone provider-Verizon! Why Sony would want to miss out on potentially millions of subscribers, i dont know. If they are smart, they will add the L and R buttons, and release the phone across all the US providers. Except, unlike the Galaxy phones, keep the camera flash on all versions!
