PlayStation Phone revealed

1Ghz CPU, physical buttons, touchpad, Android

Product: PlayStation Phone (Xperia Play) | Manufacturer: Sony Ericsson

Engadget has managed to get its grubby hands on a prototype of the much-rumoured PlayStation phone weeks, or even months, before Sony was ready to reveal it.

The PlayStation Phone, or PSPhone as I’ll call it, comes with Android as its OS – probably Gingerbread, although this wasn’t working very well on the prototype - a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 CPU, half a gig of RAM, 1GB of ROM and a slide out physical ‘play area’.

Here’s where the PlayStation part comes in – the slide-out section contains eight face buttons, two shoulder buttons and a multi touch touchpad strung between.

It’s not the dual-analogue setup that most PSP owners were hoping for, but it could prove to be an interesting compromise between touch controls and physical elements.

The PSPhone is expected to be out early next year, although Sony has yet to confirm it even exists, let alone the release date.

Compare the design with a SE Vivaz pro. Same case, one more button on the front, "other" keypad design.

It could be an early prototype as the WP7 Omnia HDs or just a mock-up. Though I doubt the current Vivaz/Satio hardware ARM8+SGX530 will get Android 3.0.

But if they go for Android, then all of the PSP games are out of the picture? Then what is the point of it at all?

Is it fake or real ?
