The PlayStation Phone

Engadget purports to have photos of The PlayStation Phone:

It’s hard to believe that what we’re looking at is real — but we assure you, the picture above is in fact the PlayStation Phone you’ve long been waiting for. As we reported back in August, the device you see is headed into the market soon, likely boasting Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), along with a custom Sony Marketplace which will allow you to purchase and download games designed for the new platform.

It’s hard to believe indeed, it’s really not a thing of beauty. Not that PSPs have ever been, but they’ve been prettier than this. Still, the build quality does lend a certain realism to the device. It’ll be interesting to see whether PSP Phone games are actual Android games, or whether this thing can actually run PSP games.
