PlayStation Phone Is Leaked—Maybe
A screen shot from of the reported prototype.   (

The much-rumored PlayStation phone looks to be the real deal. Engadget today provided photos of what it calls a prototype and says it would likely be on the market in 2011, with an outside chance of later this year. The phone would likely use Google's Android software and connect users to a Sony Marketplace where games could be purchased. Click the Engadget link for details and images.

The device holds on to some of the look of the PSP, with the familiar thumb and shoulder buttons. A Sony exec refused to confirm or deny the validity of the report, but suggested that change is coming soon to the portable game system, notes CNN. Not everyone's convinced this isn't a hoax, however, as the Daily News explains. (More PlayStation stories.)
