Posted on January 7, 2011, Phil Owen Somebody in China Wrote an In-Depth, Hands-On Playstation Phone Preview (PICS and VIDEO)
Well, this is certainly interesting. A Chinese website called IT186 got a hold of some version of the Playstation Phone by some means, and they published a very lengthy, 12-page preview of the thing with tons of pictures and a few videos, which I have embedded below. This is pretty amusing timing, what with this coming up now during CES a day after Sony failed to make this official.
And they’ve got games running on it, which is cool. The tech specs they provide look pretty much like what we thought they would be, with a couple differences — it has Android 2.3 instead of 3.0 and 512MB ROM instead of 1gb. It does have Xperia branding, which means that it probably will get a name other than “Playstation Phone” when i is eventually announced.
Anyway, watch the videos below and then head over to IT186 for the full scoop. You may not be able to read it, but they’ve got a ton of pictures you can enjoy. I thought about stealing all their photos and posting them here, but then I remembered that I’m just an asshole, not a douchebag. (coughengadgetcough)
