The new Playstation phone is here! Soon! Probably!
Several weeks ago, Bitterwallet exclusively revealed a photo of the new Sony Playstation phone. The only two issues with our dazzling exclusive were that it wasn't exclusive at all - we nobbled it from Engadget - and it turned out to be a fake anyway. But apart from that, we were bang on the money.
Moving on, it's looking likely a Playstation phone really is in development - and that it could be launched as early as February.
While he may be playing at being the industry equivalent of a cocktease, Sony Ericsson Chief Executive Bert Nordberg told the Wall Street Journal that the company "is at work on a smartphone that would take advantage of Sony's experience in developing the PlayStation Portable videogame device."
If that wasn't enough of a clear indication, Nordberg goes on to rattle off a list of soundbites that'll no doubt have fanbois moist in the gussets:
"There's a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere... Sony has an extremely strong offering in the gaming market, and that's very interesting."
"Sony is of course a very strong brand, and why shouldn't we use that? Gaming, including content, is a very interesting proposition."
Nordberg is also quoted has saying Sony Ericcson will be making a major announcement in relation to whatever-it-is-he's-talking-about in February - at Mobile World Congress, the global expo where major products are showcased.
So there'll be a Playstation phone on the way in 2011, right? No doubt about it, surely?
