Official: Sony Is Planning To Launch PlayStation Phone

50°
358w ago - After several months of rumors, it has just been confirmed that Sony is currently indeed working on the Playstation Phone project to bring the power of a video game console to a mobile phone device. A high ranking official inside Sony Japan said that Sony wants to grab the two fastest growing electronics markets at once with the Playstation Phone, which are : gaming and mobile telecommunication.

It has also been confirmed that Sony had already submitted an application for a mobile telecommunication device with video games functions to the U.S. Patents and Trademark Office.

Convergence with the two arms working together is definitely plausible. It is hugely intellectually seductive to have a console oriented phone. "

Diptarup Chakraborti, a Principal Analyst at Gartner Research Firm also said that : " While the Cybershot and Walkman are better selling brands from the Sony fold, Playstation almost enjoys cult status and two strong brands, Sony Ericsson and Playstation would make a strong success story for Sony."

The exact launch date for the Playstation Phone is currently still unknown, but I will let...

    History:

    According to the book "Game Over", by David Scheff, the first conceptions of the PlayStation date back to 1986.
