Sony PlayStation Phone Roll Out at MWC; in Stores by April 2011

December 21, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony’s PlayStation phone has been keeping us all waiting, and there’s no doubt that everyone out there is eyeing one. We already have tonnes of information on what the device would look and behave like, and so the desperation to get one has been growing too. It seems the wait is heading for an end.

Come February, the phone would see itself rolled out at the Mobile World Congress and soon after that – in April – retail racks will be ready for it. What worries us is the anticipation of many who had expected the phone to be launched at CES starting in a few days at Las Vegas.

The launch date is set to go beyond Las Vegas and will make them all wait for a bit more for the MWC (hope you remember we told you that some time ago) to open. We now have confirmation on that. So forget Las Vegas, head for Barcelona, if you are one of those Sony fans out there.

The phone with the slider design reminding you of the PSP Go will come with a dedicated gaming pad and the regular PlayStation square, cross, triangle and circle buttons. Didn’t you see that in the leaked video we showed you earlier?

Driven by a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655, 512MB of RAM, the Sony PlayStation phone will sport 1GB of ROM. The device will have an ideal gaming display of around 4.1 inches.

Now, that’s almost for sure. What we are a bit worried about is that Soy may not throw in all those latest games you wanted to try out when the phone hits the MWC. But then, not to worry! They will all be there when April dawns.
