Sony Ericsson to Introduce an Android 3.0 Gaming Smartphone?


Sponsored Links
206w ago - Previously Sony refused PlayStation branding on a Sony Ericsson PSP Phone and dismissed such claims of a device as speculation, however, according to [Register or Login to view links] Sony Ericsson is slated to introduce an Android 3.0 gaming platform and PSPgo-like smartphone.

This possible change of heart may be due in part to Sony's recent PlayStation Licensing Program expansion.

According to a 'trusted source' of Engadget, Sony Ericsson will introduce a cross between the PSP Go and an Android phone later this year.

To quote: "The handset is supposed to be a "landscape slider," but instead of a QWERTY keyboard like a mobile phone or regular game controls like the PSP, it will have PlayStation buttons, a d-pad and a "long touch pad" to mimic dual analog input.

Sony Ericsson's device will run Android 3.0, and games will be made available through a special section of the Android Market, with versions of God of War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and LittleBigPlanet reportedly used as examples of what sort of lineup we could expect.

Additionally, games that meet certain requirements might be made available to other Android handset users and, eventually, titles might embrace other smartphone features such as augmented reality.

The phone is reportedly set to be introduced sometime this October."

It is about time sony pulled their finger out of their arse when it comes to phones. They seem to always be catching up to the others. Look at the x10 it is running on android 1.6 and it is quite a new phone. I hope this will be worth buying..
