Posted on January 17, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Playstation Phone For Sale in China
According to RegHardware, Taiwanese site ePrice found and purchased the Playstation Phone in China, where it was apparently on sale. They played with it and at least RegHardware thinks it’s the real deal and not a knock-off made form cobbled-together phone and PSP Go parts.
There’s no carrier service for the phone, so ePrice’s model doesn’t do much, and its Playstation Pocket app doesn’t do anything. We’ve seen the supposed Xperia Play running a few PSX games from the app, but so far what we’ve heard about the phone’s functionality is pretty limited. Otherwise, everything is the same from what we’ve heard so far, including the 4-inch touchscreen and the Android 2.3 operating system.
Still, weird that Sony hasn’t got its phone on a leash and that it’s out wandering around so much.
