In an exclusive report from a “trusted source,” Engadget is delivering some juicy news on the smartphone front. Actually, it’s also on the gaming front, too. You know what, it’s actually on the no-freaking-way front, as well.
Though prior to this, rumors of a PSP phone from Sony Ericsson had just been that (i.e., rumors), but Engadget says that is is most definitely real. They’re supposedly working very closely with Google to get what has been described as a “cross between the Samsung Captivate and the PSP Go” announced by October and out for sale by, well, some time after that.
From what Engadget says, though, that’s exactly what we’re getting. It’s supposed to look just like a PSP Go or any landscape slider phone where the slide out portion is a replica of the PSP’s controls complete with D-pad, face and shoulder buttons, and the nub, though that is reportedly being replaced by a “long touchpad.” On the inside, it’s pretty much a smartphone as it will most likely house a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, maybe a 5 megapixel camera, and a roughly 4-inch WVGA (or better) screen over a custom build of Android 3.0, or “Gingerbread.”
Excited yet? You should be, but I’m going to lay out even more goodness. The graphics on this puppy are supposedly somewhere around PSX or PSP games and will get its 3D games from an exclusive section of the Android Market which could include something along the lines of God of War, Call of Duty, and LittleBigPlanet titles.
Though this is almost all completely rumor, Engadget has a long and trusted track record of producing credible news from the underground. Be that as it may, however, you should still take this all with a grain of salt. Also, thanks a bundle to Engadget and their “source” for sharing this tidbit. Head over to their site to read the full story and see their full mockup of the phone.
