Sony Ericsson's Gaffer Talks About Smoke & Fires, Hints At The Existence Of PSPhone
Posted by Sammy Barker
Sony Ericsson's CEO Bert Nordberg has virtually confirmed the existence of the long rumoured PlayStation Phone, though it's sounding more and more likely to us that the so called "PSPhone" will be more a "phone that plays good games," rather than an SCE branded product
Nordberg told the Wall Street Journal: Theres a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere.
Sony has an extremely strong offering in the gaming market, and thats very interesting."
He added: Sony is of course a very strong brand, and why shouldnt we use that? Gaming, including content, is a very interesting proposition.
The Wall Street Journal furthers that the phone will actually belong to Sony Ericsson's Xperia brand, will run Android and that games will be available through a similar application. The device is due to be revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next February.
At first we didn't understand the dual strategy of having a "PlayStation Phone" and the upcoming PSP2, but we finally get it. This isn't a "PlayStation Phone" at all. It's a Sony Ericsson with an emphasis on gaming and the PlayStation button layout. It finally makes sense to us.
