    Could be interesting if they actually put out some good games, and of course if proper emulators come out [​IMG]
    I'm adding this to my to-watch list, I could be in the market for a new phone any day because my current phone is running on it's last legs.

    it's a shame though that they will be using current high-end hardware for a next generation smartphone.
    supposedly it has a single core 1GHZ cpu like current high-end smartphones, while by the time it's released most high-end phones will probably have tegra2's with 1GHZ dual-core.

    Someone, somehow managed to get ahold of one of these things a few weeks back and boasted about it on /v/.

    If I remember right, he said the should buttons were apparently pretty uncomfortable, I can imagine with how the screen slides back.

    Could this thing be cheaper than the NGP?
    IDK.

    And that commercial sure is disturbing.

    It's a phone, either it'll be free/affordable on a tariff or bloody expensive on a pay-as-you-go scheme. :\

    Seriously though will this phone really sell? If it's PSP games you want, go for a PSP already.
    The inclusion of traditional gaming controls on a mobile phone shouldn't be such a novel concept, but sadly it is, I don't think it's been done yet.

    I have to say, it seems like Sony finally has something to reckon with here. If nothing else, the first-gen PSP built up their reputation in the handheld market, which should help easily distinguish them from iPhone, and it's definitely a step aside from what Nintendo's doing.

    Good stuff. Hell, I might actually buy one.

    Except this comes with Android too, so you have access to emulators and "homebrew"/apps without having to hack/unblock it.

    I'm really attracted by it, I wanted an android cellphone for so long, maybe it'll be this one.

    For whatever reason I'm not impressed....Maybe if it gets hacked like the iphones I'll check it out. What provider does this even work with?

    That commercial made me giggle....The only disturbing thing was where did they get the thumbs from

    If it's possible to root, I'll get one. Not so much for the native games as for it having potential to become the handheld emulator platform.

    I'm gonna guess this'll be slightly more locked down than the standard Android phone; while their PSX emulator will probably be far superior, my guess is that they'll try to keep people from using psx4droid if they can.

    I would've sworn it had already been announced but whatever.
