Sony Ericsson "PlayStation Phone" pictured again, this time with XPERIA logo and Android 2.3

Another batch of photos of the still unconfirmed but also definitely still forthcoming Sony Ericsson “PlayStation Phone” have arrived, quashing earlier rumours that it would arrive as a BRAVIA-branded phone. It seems to say XPERIA on it right now in big, capital letters.

But… it doesn’t appear to actually say “PlayStation” on it anywhere either, despite the presence of those familiar PlayStation controller buttons and the little logo on the bottom-left of the controller array.

The newest batch of photos, found here by Engadget, show what appears to be a finished gaming handset complete with screen protector – and close-ups of the Android About screen confirm it’s currently running Android 2.3. Which for a Sony Ericsson phone, is something of a miracle.

    “it’s currently running Android 2.3. Which for a Sony Ericsson phone, is something of a miracle.”

    The made me lol hard!

    On a more serious note, that logo in the bottom left corner looks very much like the Playstation Store logo, which I think is very interesting. Could SCE actually like this thing? Looking forward to hearing more now….

      err yeah but it says psp onit, as in playstation portable….. by that logic the ps3 doesnt say playstation onit either as you know it says ps3 ( slim version atleast as i know it does say playstation on the fat ps3)

      This isnt a psp phone, this is a sony phone that will most likely have access to a version of the ps store, its clearly got gaming in mind, am hoping i can use the controls for normal android games, as alot of the gameloft games are very impressive already.

    the screen looks to be about 3.7 inch, look at the pic with the x10 and the ps phone beside each other. It looks like it near final or final build too because all the details seem to be there and theres that film on the screen just like when you get a new phone.

    this is bullshit sony is messing with our heads. One minute we getting a android base 3.0 honey comb next were getting android 2.3. Like make a up your fucking mind your annoying your hardcore supporters. Sony owes a us a good phone instead of the first playstation phone the Aino, which is a great phone but a sloppy piece of shit. Sony needs to get their heads out their ass and put this phone together. They got a month before mobile congress to make a mark to compete with blackberry and iphone. I want them to launch the greatest phone known to mankind or fuck their credability up worst than they already have and be the laughing stock of the mobile community. Please Sony stop launching spec and this phone together right because your pissing me off. We want a good phone because whats on the market is boring the hell out of me but you need to launch it right. Make your choice. Launch the greatest phone ever with the help google and put your critics mouth to rest or present sloppy material and watch media rip your image apart and credability in the toilet like the first playstation phone the Aino.
