    With a multitouch virtual keyboard, I could really see myself using this, but what are the odds of this coming to Verizon...

    in you.
    That would be pretty awesome. I'd buy it. But the battery life would be so pathetic. With all the PSX and PSP games. Not to mention the phone...that would also take quite a bit of battery power.

    Coming to Verizon - snowballs chance in hell.

    SonyEricsson hasn't made a cdma phone for the U.S. in years and said they don't plan to again.

    I can imagine. I get ~2 hours battery playing psx4droid.

    Battery life might be okay. Rumor has it Sony has an Android phone that can record 720p for 12 hours straight without dying.

    That's awesome! I would totally love to own a hybrid smart phone / portable gaming device.

    In fact I did almost the exact same mock-up a few months ago in PShop:

    Now THAT is a nice mock-up.

    ATTN Sony Ericsson: Note the two analog sticks.

    Yeah, I would much prefer analog sticks, nubs, whatever....to their idea of a touchpad. Touch pad just doesn't offer the same tactile feel and precision of analog input like that. I've seen a few other mock-ups that are even better, just do a google search for "playstation phone".

    What I would really like to see is a strongly supported downloadable library of games and controls that are on par with something like the PSPgo and have all the functionality of an android smartphone. I bought a game gripper for my droid and can play emu games pretty well with it and I would definitely invest in a dedicated gaming/phone device.

    I honestly see this going to all carriers.
    Isn't Verizon's new LTE Network going to use SIM cards?

    I could not imagine Sony releasing something and Iphone'n themselves to only AT&T or T-Mobile who use SIM. That is simply Jackassery. It would mean that soooo many people couldn't use it as a phone, ruining possible market share.

    Here's what I would like to see: Release the phone as a gaming console for $300 and make it able to be activated on any network. Is that in the cards? Probably not. But man, that would mean that the phone could be on anyones network without contract.

    If you made the PSP/Android or PSP2 system and only made it available if you signed a contract with a wireless carrier, then you have already lost.

    in you.
    Yeah. I remember that back in the day when I was in 7th grade. It was cool and all, but it looked really weird when you were holding it like a regular phone and talking on it.

    I'll believe it when I see it...
    Realistically, I don't really see how it would be possible to cram in all of the extra hardware that a PSP needs, without making the thing huge. Not to mention how big the slide-out portion would probably have to be. Even if they manage to make one that isn't humongous, then you've got to deal with PSP games on a a smaller screen. But hey - anythings possible. If anything actually becomes of this, it would be kind of surprising, considering Sony's continued stance against PSP's running anything other than official software. o_O
