awesome news indeed!
Bad news for everyone. One vital part of the story is missing. This is NOT a PSP or PSP2 phone. It runs Android - it just has controller buttons for gaming.
Sony Playstation 1
Sony Playstation 2
Sony Playstation portable
Sony HDTV range
Sony Playstation 3
Yeh, my moneys on this being a massive success.
Don't think it is a fake.
The "Phone" looks, OK. But don't flash me, that I will go and buy it.
this is a great alternative for people who want a phone but don't want to carry a bulky psp.
Obviously you can't fit a game pad and keyboard on a phone, so just use a real game pad and use a touch screen keyboard. Using touch screen for games is just stupid. It doesn't respond well enough.
I remember Sony Ericsson tried to do this along time ago. but Sony refused and never gave them the get go. then again they might have done a deal or some sort for a later deal.

i used to think the exact same way, you just never had the chance to really try an iphone i'm sure of that much...
