Confirmed: The “PlayStation Phone” cometh!

It’s been rumoured, supposedly debunked, and rumoured again more times than Ant & Dec have appeared on TV, but now it’s finally official: The “PlayStation Phone” is real, and it’s coming to market very soon!

Officially named the Xperia Play, the phone combines a traditional Android 3.0-powered smart-phone with a preloaded PlayStation Pocket app for downloading and playing PlayStation games. It’s also powered by a Qualcomm chip for lightning fast performance. The Xperia Play has been leaked and spied for months, with Sony Ericsson happily previewing the phone on several occasions – but despite it all, there were constant doubts as to whether the phone was ever actually going to be released.

O2, T-Mobile/Orange and Vodaphone have all confirmed they will host the phone in the UK as soon as it is launched, which Orange has stated is due in April. This leaves only the Three network left to confirm a launch.

Pricing is still to be confirmed by all the networks.

    T-Mobile coming back for a second round in the Smartphone game – announces development of T-Mobile G2 Smartphone

    The G1 smartphone from T-Mobile was the first Android-powered handset to hit the market, and it was arguably a very good introduction for Android to the Smartphone market. But that was a few years back, and since then we’ve seen far superior Android smartphones hit the market. It didn’t take long, therefore, for people to spread rumours that T-Mobile was working on a sequel to the phone to hit back at the newer, stronger competitors. But T-Mobile stayed silent all this time.

    Until today.

    T-Mobile has just announced it is mounting a comeback with a sequel phone that’s “better than ever”. The new phone is called – what else? – T-Mobile G2 (with Google), and is Read the rest of this entry »
