    The above video appears to show a quick look at Sony's rumoured PSP phone. Based on rumours of the past, the prototype images are identical to the model shown in the video above, where it is called the Sony Ericsson ZEUS - Z1.
    A main menu and screens showing device information and firmware are seen, but no gaming features are depicted. The device, the Sony Ericsson "Zeus" appears to use the telecommunications carrier MTEL CG, which is based in Montenegro. Although a PlayStation icon can clearly be seen on the screen, it's noteworthy that the guy never touches it. Reports in August said Sony was basing the PlayStation Phone on the Android 3.0 platform. Rumours of a PlayStation Phone have bubbled up off and on for more than two years, getting renewed strength in March when the Wall Street Journal reported Sony was working on a smartphone capable of downloading and playing original PlayStation titles.[/p]

    Just by knowing the fact that they will probably out all functions if you don't actually use the phone part, this is gonna blow.

    Like my old LG phone, no SIM card? Then fuck you you're not using the digital camera.

    that's actually the reason why i'm going to buy this phone. I can play Dragon Quest VII with real buttons (not a crappy touchscreen) on it. and of course other good PSX games.

    People talking about whether it plays PSX games or PSP games or whatever: No one knows! However, there is another video showing a person loading up the "PlayStation" app, although they have no content installed, so we can't see what exactly it supports.

    I for one think this phone looks pretty epic. I always liked the idea of Android, and the hardware seems fairly well designed IMO too. Although I probably won't buy it, because unless you get it with a contract, I'm sure it'll cost a fortune, and I dont use my phone enough to merit a contract.

    Expect a lack of a joy stick, it looks pretty good actually.
