The Playstation Phone is something that's been rumored for a while- a loooong while. In fact, I remember talking about a PSPhone since before the iPhone was a glimmer in Steve Jobs' eye.
So now it looks like there actually is a Playstation Phone. Shots have surfaced, some details are out, blah, blah, blah... The problem is, especially with the leaked info of the PSP2, we no longer need a Playstation Phone. Who would be the market for this thing? People who miss their N-Gage? Sony fanboys? Even then, Sony has been the first one lately to say how inferior phones are for gaming.
I don't know, it makes no sense to me, but maybe somebody out there doesn't like iOS, Android, or Blackberry, or any of the thousand other phones and phone OS' out there- and maybe they don't want a PSP2, or even a 3DS. Maybe that's the market?
