Playstation PhoneEarlier today Engadget followed on their scoop of a Playstation Android handset with some supposed real pictures of the device. The phone, codenamed “Zeus”, bears a strong resemblance to the PSP GO and will pack some serious hardware. The handset will be armed with a 45nm 1GHz Snapdragon (MSM8655 chipset) that comes with the Adreno 205 GPU, a screen size between 3.7-4.1-inches, 512MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM.

Other features include a long multitouch touchpad in the middle and microSD card support. Engadget says the device is hitting soon, although looking at the images which distinctly look like a prototype I’d be surprised to see it hit in 2010. The device is expected to ship with Android Gingerbread (although the test model was running Android 2.X). Some sources claim that the pictures are fake, prompting Engadget to put up a follow-up post saying that the pictures are real according to their “trusted sources”. What’s your take, is Sony Ericsson on the right path? Is this something you’d be interested in? Let us know in the comments below.
