We're treated to a date and time, February 13th at 6PM GMT, a pair of full frontal shots of the Gingerbread-running, gamepad-wearing smartphone, and the full version of that creepy ad we saw for it a couple of days back.

Just over a month back we saw the first pictures of the Sony Ericsson Z1 PSP PlayStation phone, and today TechBlog.gr (linked above) has revealed what appears to be the first leaked video of it in action.
To quote, roughly translated: Fell to my Sony Ericsson Z1 (menu Settings - About Phone, listed as Zeus).

To quote from PSGroove: The HTC Hero now is able to perform the jailbreak on all PS3 models.
With great thanks to alephzain the hero now works. Below is the update.zip for gsm Hero with psfreedom, best way for now is nandroid backup, flash the update, apply hack on PS3 and nandroid restore to return to existing rom.
1. Copy .zip onto sdcard

6. Reboot to recovery and restore nandroid backup
7. Goto 1 each time you switch on PS3 until a better method is developed

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...
