Rumor: PlayStation Phone Revealed With Complete Specs

No, it isn't the PSP2 - which has apparently been known to insiders for some time - but the oft-rumored PlayStation Phone.  And it's still a rumor because some sources say this ain't real...so what else is new?

But it seems Engadget has stumbled upon a picture of the real deal; it'll actually be "headed into the market soon," complete with Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread) and a custom Sony Marketplace that will let you buy and download games designed specifically for the gadget. The phone boasts a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (200MHz faster than what we have in the G2), 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is between 3.7 and 4.1 inches wide. The handset features a touch-pad in the center and it even includes the familiar PlayStation shoulder buttons. Lastly, there's no Memory Stick slot, but there is support for microSD cards. The model shown in the screenshots through the link "is still in prototyping mode" and is rumored to contain a few bugs. Therefore, it may be unlikely that it'll be around for the holidays; 2011 makes much more sense right about now. Well, that's fine by us...we didn't even see it coming at all, and it still might not.

Now all we need is a release date and a price tag. The latter will be the most important, don't you think?  Then again, we could use actual confirmation, too... FYI, Sony's "we don't comment on rumor and speculation" doesn't mean anything.

I think that'll be the biggest thing if this is true. Either way, I ain't givin' up my iPhone.

Since the thing is begging for a SIM card, I think it's safe to assume AT&T or T-Mobile at least in America.

EDIT: Since the thing is begging for a SIM card it's safe to assume its GSM, which rules out Sprint or Verizon, at least in America.

Fair enough, Jawk. I've never played any racing type games or anything that requires fast reactions. My games are things like Dungeon Hunter, Final Fantasy I and II, Elvan Chronicles... you know.... RPG's... they only require a dpad and an accept button, so it really doesn't negatively impact the experience on the iphone.

It's a touch screen right? There's no qwerty keyboard, and I can't imagine typing text messages like I do with the ps3 IM, virtual keyboard, with the DS3 D-Pad and X button. You can only type so fast with that method.

Wonder if it can play regular PSP games. It says it plays games specifically for the device. If it does, I'm wondering if it'll give us a preview of the PSP2's graphics.

This is still a prototype, and an unconfirmed one at that.

There is one thing about these supposed "specs" that make me a little skeptical:

The device is based on Android, which is a lot more "open" compared to the operating systems that Sony has given us so far - both on consoles and handhelds.

This open-ness can lead to many issues, most troubling of which are easy homebreeding and piracy.

If the specs here are indeed real, than Sony Ericsson would have to lock out quite a few features from Andriod, which will also restrict its smartphone functionality.

i would imagine that they would make an app for the playstation store, and load only allow that app on that phone, so the app wouldnt be allowed onto the android market, now yes the app can be ported to other phones but without a controler it will be rather pointless even if someone somehow made on screen controls for the games ( which i doubt theyd be able to do btw ) i think it will be ok, and could be a top top phone that literal has no equal as android pretty much does evrything better than an iphone anyway except games, but psp games are easily better than iphones.

Seems a little flimsy at best. What would you play with this thing? If it has shoulder buttons it would be a gimped down psp with touch functionality.

Looks like Sony wants to try to take a bite out of Apple's 'casual gaming' audience. Here's 50$ on this thing playing tetris, farmville and being a social media machine and not a real gaming device.

So, it's a phone that looks like a PSP Go and runs Android. Sounds more like a Chinese knock off, especially as it lacks the PSP chipset and has no memory stick slot. I mean why lumber the PSP brand with this device which will more than likely *not* play existing PSP games? Why lumber the poor phone with the PSP tag, when it won't be able to play existing PSP games?

This just seems like a pretty poor idea all the way around.

yes but the processor in the psp is only clocked at 333mhz? i know clock speed isnt everything but... it also only has 64mb of ram, i know this has android as well but id say if sony was building this, it will be able to play psx and psp games am just sure it wont use android to actually power the games am sure you'l be able to go into like a psp mode sort of thing on the phone.

Reasons I think it's fake:

-All Sony Ericsson uses M2 rather than microSD.
-Dual Analogs are meant for PSP2, why would they release this before PSP2 is announced?
-Android 3.0 doesn't comes out in the next couple months.

@Cavan1

The PSP has a CPU and GPU, the memorystick memory includes a measure of copy protection. the PSP platform itself is engineered to be secure. You can't simply emulate the CPU and/or GPU, you have to emulate the entire system including the memorystick interface. That Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM sound great, but they may not be up to the task of emulating a CPU running at 333MHz along with the custom GPU in the PSP and it's hardware interfaces. I'm skeptical as to whether it can be done on that platform at all, but even if it can, it's very definitely a case of taking the long road to get somewhere.

It may play PS1 games, there are good emulators for that hardware, and the PS1 hardware wasn't anything like as advanced or high performance as that in the PSP.

You can't just look at the clock speed and assume that you can emulate the system. A 1GHz processor that emulates a 333MHz processor has to be able to emulate every instruction of the target processor in no more than three of it's own instructions. That's really pushing the capabilities of any processor emulation, and doesn't include the emulation of the rest of the PSP hardware.

Highlander
Wednesday, October 27, 2010 @ 1:37:36 PM

Actually, I didn't think the slim PS3 was a knock off.

As for this thing, it might be real, it might not. *If* it's real there are some *real* problems with it in terms of it being a PSP and a phone. It might be a PSP branded phone, it might play PS1 games, but the Qualcomm processor inside it really isn't up to the job of emulating a PSP. The absence of a memorystick interface is troubling too.

I'm saying that the prototype doesn't really look well finished, which is why it looks like one of those Chinese fake PSPs. I'm not saying it is a Chinese fake.

I just have a feeling that this is nothing more than a Sony Ericsson cellphone that is being given the PSP brand name and controls like a PSP-Go. It will probably be capable of playing PS1 titles and PSP minis downloaded from some part of the Android Market place, or a PSN marketplace of some kind. But that's about as far as it goes. It might be better to call this a PlayStation Phone, rather than a PSP cellphone. Assuming that it ever reaches the light of day.

All that said, I hate Sony Ericsson phones, they've always been crap in my epxerience, so if this is a real product, they'll have had to made drastic improvements in the quality of their design work.

I think you'll find with processors that the clocking speed and number of hertz is almost irrelevant when talking about processor speeds. Sure it plays a role, but the more important factors have to do with the number of computations per interval the processor is able to compute at one time.

For example, my friend has a dual core processor at 3.1GHz on his computer. But my triple core processor at 2.66GHz is faster, or at least makes more computations per second. In other words, mine handles more computations than his, even though, technically speaking, his computes a singular task pretty quickly.

My tech savviness isn't 100% accurate, but I think I got the gist of it there.

Basically, I'm trying to say there are a lot of factors to consider, and efficiency is one. Even if system A is faster, if system B is more efficient, it might have the better of the two processors. Like TheHighlander said in short, the PSP's processing capabilities is tailored to that specific system and is therefore faster and more efficient than an Android of higher hertz.

look i do know this, i did say that clock speed isnt evrything, but it is a brand new processor, its not the same snapdragon thats in the nexus one, and the psp is hardware from 2004. Am not saying that its defo, and what your saying about just a playstation phone that plays mini's and psx sounds quite plausible, also with it running android those controllers will be great for the other emulators on the market. Am just saying i think that if sony gets behind this properly i think the phone could be optimised to play those games, i think the hardware is good enough to play psp games, now maybe they will have to port the games over and its not the psn store that you connect to but more an android ps store where only certain games have been ported over along with minis and psx titles, guess we'll have to wait and see, but i know this if it is true, it will be day one purchase for me, i have a psp and never use it as i dont like taking more than my phone with me, and as much as i love my htc desire and love android, gaming onit is not great.

Sorry, I'm not trying to be a pain, it's just that I do know hardware, I've actually written processor emulation code. I would be awfully impressed if they managed to emulate the PSP's CPU on a 1GHz ARM core, I'd be downright amazed if they managed to emulate the PSP entirely.

The Qualcomm processor is pretty good, it includes a fairly recent ARM core, and for a phone will be pretty zippy. I really hope that there is something called a PlayStation Phone that can handle the downloadable PS1 and PSP Mini games. It would be an instant upgrade decision for me, I love my Moto Droid, but I'd jump at a PlayStation Phone.

I agree with sweedie about 1 gadget for all is a nice idea, although it;s the only reason I can think of at this moment. I'm going to be traveling for about 40+ hours this weekend, and it's annoying to reach in my bag to fumble between my PSP, iphone, ipod (I have an old iphone, only 8gigs and I have movies and music), and wallet.

It's not a big selling feature for me, but it would be cool to only fumble between wallet and 'gadget'. (I keep my wallet in my bookbag... it's annoying to sit on a wallet for that many hours.)

Anytime i call them with an issue, they get the serial number off my device and then proceed to ask me for a credit card in order to continue the converstaion. I just pretend i didn't hear that and continue asking my question.

I hope these rumors are false. Apple acquiring Sony would only increase the cost for us. Apple makes cool gadgets gut doesn't know how to bring them to us at affordable prices.

February 1? This can't be that old.
I think a PSP that is also a phone would be cool(using blue tooth or something), but a "Playstation phone" no.
I see this being fake.

saw this a couple days ago, did not really give much credence to it, still dont.

but if it is real what the hell for?
apple are going to walk all over this, i mean the iphone 4 has been out for over 5 months now and its still sold out country wide!
every store in the country has been getting stock every day now, stores open at 9 and by 10:30 there all sold out!
you really think sony can compete with that?
good luck!

sony, dont waste your time, just get all the kinks worked out and release the PSP2 god dam it!
sony really needs to stop focusing on what there not good at, and start focusing on what they are good at.
games, and game consoles, none of this phone, media hub bull sh*t!
just like if you want a watch you buy a rollex, just like if you want a car you buy a Ferrari, if you want a phone you buy a Iphone!
unless you want something that would last 2 months, have 1/10th of the content the apps store has added on it per week, and have the battery life of a 20 year old Motorola than maybe you could buy a PS phone.

Like I've said before, anything big enough to be truly useful as a PlayStation Portable is too big to be convenient for everyday use as a cell phone, and anything small enough to be convenient as a cell phone is way too small to use as a serious gaming device. Just give me a PSP2 with a fantastic screen and dual analogs - that I can play ALL PSP games on - and don't expect me pay $50 - $100 extra for cell phone circuitry that I don't want.

I really dont like the sound of this if it's real. I effectively wont be able to use my entire psn collection on it if my understanding is right.
