The last time we got a sneak peak at the Playstation phone, it came courtesy of good ol' Mr. Blurry cam. That of course left some folks out there still questioning it's existence and still feeling a little skeptical about the whole thing. Alas, another video has now popped up showing off the device rather vividly. All hail Zeus for this one, it's nice.

Not much has changed in that time; the device is still rather thick and still appears to be running Gingerbread. But, if you look carefully you can now see the Playstation icon on the device itself which, for most should leave you with no doubt about it's ability to run Playstation games. When will we see it? Not sure really but CES is upon us. [Engadget]

If it's running Gingerbread, where are the green accents on the browser and phone launcher?

Gee says:

I thought the same thing until the end. Notice how it bounces and then glows when he reaches the ends of the launcher? That was a 2.3 feature that was verbally leaked out. Might just be skinned 2.3.

Stang68 says:

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Hopefully we find out more, soon.

E_man says:

Was thinking the same thing. Not as visually slick as I was hoping for though.

Go Android! says:

It's a really nice phone, but i'm 100% sure it's not going to Sprint so it doesn't really interest me.

Also, that phone is THICK. They could build houses with it.

starscream84 says:

I was thinking the same thing... and since when does android use words in the about phone section? I've never seen anything other then version numbers. 2.1.....2.1 update 1.... 2.2 ect..

So psphone will have any games that psp/ps3 have or just regular phones games...
And battery life, as we know android phones are very limited... if i want a portable game device id buy the psp and has great juice for it, but i am glad sony are coming out with at least with better phones...

P.s.
Looks good but at first it looked like bb storm...

uranidiot says:

AGAIN...IT WILL FAIL IF ITS NOT AVAILABLE ON ALL 4 MAJOR CARRIERS ON DAY 1!

Go Android! says:

Yea they need to follow Samsung.

You mean Vodaphone, O2, Orange and T-Mobile right?

seraphemz says:

I rather wait for the PSP 2...

Kyle Gibb says:

QTP: What if this phone, in a slightly modified WiFi-only version, was the PSP2? Just speculating here...

nivlac978 says:

I think the slightly larger than normal size is somewhat a good thing. If it were too small then playing on it could be really painfull. I already can't play on the psp for too long or my fingers stat to kill me.

Wesley1 says:

No doubt it needs a big battery.

enzofall says:

To quote shady,"you got more junk in your trunk then I do in my car". Man that phone is beefy, plus its Sony so you can expect an update once every 10years. Not the phone for me.

rem_kujawa says:

I want it, NOW

falconeight says:

Ill take two

Jerzyiroc says:

You guys ever think that maybe it's so think BECAUSE it has a big battery?

nivlac978 says:

When we get the update, will it say gingerbread there instead of version 2.3?

rem_kujawa says:

I just hope its comes to sprint.

"The last time we got a sneak peak at the Playstation phone,"

I believe you meant peek, rather than peak. Mountains are not known for their stealth. :)

marrrio_ says:

i love how it's running stock gingerbread. Good to know that sony hasn't slowed down the phone by messing with the stock.

Xm_jdm says:

That is ugly is SIN. I mean just awful.

intristin says:

Can we see it play a game? Otherwise what's the point really?

trsteve1 says:

Kind of stupid question.. but where do you put the PSP games? I mean.. it can't be a PSP phone, if it doesn't play PSP games, right?

iPwn says:

The PSP Go doesn't have a UMD drive either and that's a PSP device. I'd imagine it'd have it's own digital Playstation Store, much like the PSP Go does.

trsteve1 says:

Ok. I see... was not aware of the PSP go (apparently missed that one)

Thanx

dwt10 says:

THIS NEEDS A GAME GRIPPER. lol

biggbrother2 says:

Anyone else notice the 3D app drawer now rotates when the phone is turned?

tkfox007 says:

Maybe, I never really used my PSP in the first place.

Smokexz says:

Come on the X10 failed the PSP failed and all other mobile devices have failed, really? Are you really going to buy this over the Nexus S? Sony sucks at software, even if it is running stock, it might have Sony bloatware and may have that xui. Any other phone with Android will be better than this, even a phone by Motorola.

kra2y says:

the psp did not fail by any means. It's sold 64 million units to xbox 360's 40 million. So accordind to you the xbox and psp and playstation 3 all failed. And the ds outsold all systems. So what wasn't a failure then?

noszero says:

Its funny how that "gingerbread" looks an awful lot like the "LAUNCHERPRO" I run instead of HTC sense on my EVO. LAUNCHERPRO rotates the bottom icons like that.

CyD13 says:

But it doesn't have a fade-in app drawer, and it's app drawer doesn't glow when it hits the end like that. Furthermore, LauncherPro rotates based on the accelorometer. This launcher rotated when the phone slides out.

Q-fugee says:

I'm not up on the PSPhone rumors. Is this supposed to be compatible with some member of the Playstation line? The video lacked any evidence that this can play, you know, games.

If it's a stock android with a PSP controller, what's the point and why so thick? If the extra girth isn't packing PSP hardware I don't see the point.

If my questions are answered in some other rumor thread, thanks for letting me rant anyway.

add119 says:

3d app launcher came out in january 5th to nexus one . IS ANDROID 2.1 OS FEATURE WITH LG ALLY,g2 has this launcher as well.

add119 says:

@noszero launcherpro copied the feature from stock ui from nexus one and copy widget and leap from sense ui

add119 says:

That phone to me look like sony ericson xpedia x10 when it came out in early feb 2010 with first 4 inches android before HTC and MOTO copied with their devices.

tim242 says:

Gingerbread? Nope. LauncherPro? Yep.

look again. Icons rotate based on slider-controller activity, not accelerometer.

are those analog controllers in the middle of the controls or are those touchpad controls? touch controls are kind of iffy. i don't know if touch pad have as much sensitivity as analog controls but i guess i could be proven wrong.

蛋包蛋   如果你打开一个鸡蛋,发现里面有两个蛋黄,这是常见的“双黄蛋”,你会觉得不足为奇。但是,你有没有打开一个鸡蛋,发现里面除了蛋黄和蛋清,竟然还有一个完整的鸡蛋,蛋壳还包裹得十分完整?   昨天上午,合肥市的张先生拨打本报新闻热线962000,outlet ralph lauren polo fleece,向记者反映称自己就遇到了这样的鸡蛋。张先生告诉记者,他的母亲一个星期前在东七菜市买了不少鸡蛋,昨天中午拿出鸡蛋做饭时,发现其中一个比其他的大得多,打开后竟发现里面还有一个小鸡蛋。   “实在是奇怪了,从来没见到过这样的鸡蛋。”张先生告诉记者,一家人都感到很好奇,担心这样的鸡蛋不能吃。记者看到,这个鸡蛋比平常的鸡蛋大很多,里面小鸡蛋的蛋壳很完整,但比正常的鸡蛋要小。   这个鸡蛋的成因是什么?能否食用?为此,记者采访了安徽农业大学动物科技学院耿照玉教授。耿教授告诉记者,这种鸡蛋名为“蛋包蛋”。他说,这种“蛋包蛋”的形成,是由于家禽受到应激反应,导致输卵管逆蠕动,把子宫内已基本形成的蛋,由输卵管再次推向子宫,回到子宫里,这枚蛋的外层被蛋黄、蛋清包上,再一次形成蛋。   耿教授向记者介绍,这种“蛋包蛋”的形成概率很低,不到万分之一,所以也就极其少见。耿教授还告诉记者,这样的鸡蛋比一般的鸡蛋大百分之六七十,但属于正常现象,市民可以放心地食用。本报见习记者 杨通梅 摄影报道

That is the ugliest phone I've ever seen.

the_stig#WN says:

I think this phone is going to be a hit. I hope it is that thick because it has a huge honking battery.

add119 says:

To me this phone xpedia 10 with game ripper/knock off psp made for gaming device on android to bring full hd/3d games from sony.

How about SE focusing on helping AT&T get the OS 2.1 ready for the Xperia X10. That's the LEAST they could do.

kra2y says:

if they don't screw up the phone part and it can run full psp and android games then I want one.

li2327 says:

This phone isn't attractive at all and it looks super heavy. I'll pass.

Smokexz says:

This is just so... WHY? I mean... really! I understand, it sounds cool... but I cannot imagine dedicating a thing to play video games... really that thing would be better with a keyboard or something else. Just a couple of buttons, it isn't great.
