How real is the PlayStation Phone? Judging from what has been shown on Engadget, it seems highly likely that it'll be happening. And to put some weight to the claims, a few images of an early unit has been taken and posted on the site, such as this one:
Engadget - It's hard to believe that what we're looking at is real -- but we assure you, the picture above is in fact the PlayStation Phone you've long been waiting for. As we reported back in August, the device you see is headed into the market soon, likely boasting Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), along with a custom Sony Marketplace which will allow you to purchase and download games designed for the new platform.
But we do still have our doubts on whether the PlayStation Phone will materialize. We contacted Sony Ericsson for authentication, but the company is still keeping mum about this. So take this with a pinch of salt, and let's see where this development will be heading in the next few months. Check out more pictures of the PlayStation Phone over here.
