Exclusive: Sony Ericsson to introduce
Playstation Android 3.0 Smartphone

 As for the hardware, Engadget notes that the first device created by Sony Ericsson for this new endeavor will have a mixture between XPERIA and PlayStation branding. The possible specifications are jaw-dropping, which Engadget has listed as a “cross between the Samsung Captivate and PSP Go” and they describe in further details.

The phone should be running the latest version of Google’s Android OS- 3.0 Gingerbread. It has the following specifications:
  • 1 GHz Qualcomm Processor
  • 512 MB RAM, 1 GB ROM
  • Screen is at least 3.7″ ( We expect a big screen as it’s ideal for gaming)
  • micro-SD Card Slot
  • Multi Touch Touchpad
  • Camera with LED Flash (We’re guessing around 5MP)
  • TFT touchscreen, 16M colors
On the software side, it looks like the device will be running Gingerbread (Android 3.0) with a phone-specific skin, and there will be a new area of the Android Market specifically for the games. That content will be initially accessible only by the halo device, but from the sounds of things, these titles might be made available to other Android phones if their specs and button layouts meet requirements. Games will be graphically in the range of PSX or PSP games, meaning true 3D gaming is headed to Android. Titles currently being shown off seem to be focused around some older PSX as well as new PSP offerings, with God of War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and LittleBigPlanet possibly on tap, and future plans for titles which incorporate augmented reality features.

 It also looks like no UI skinning has been done such as the Timescape UI. It maybe because of the fact that its buggy or because the pictures show a prototype device.
The release date is rumoured to be either 4th quarter of 2010 or 1st quarter of 2011. No details about pricing are known.
