You mean Goog-pie..since they are using Android...the new symbian ;) (as in..the new dominant phone OS).

The new Xperias are OK, but they seem to be getting Android updates seriously late. Sony Ericsson have been out of the phone game for at least a generation, at least they've finally dumped Symbian.

Its pretty pointless if they just take a generic phone and combine it with a psp. I mean the psp is already considered obsolete tech by todays cell phone standards. 4g is soon to be mainstream, and the psp2 is obviously in the making considering the psp has been around for almost a decade.

PSP games are still the best looking on any mobile platform.

Combine the PSP games, with Android/XMB operating system. In a clever way and you have a hit.

Most new phones either have a 1GHZ or 800MHZ which is above the PSP.

Sony should do the clever thing, release the PSP2... which is a 1.2/4GHZ 4.3 inch touch screen phone, with two analogues for slide down, why is this wise?

Well... the touch screen allow it to be FULLY android compatible, which would drastically increase the softwere from day one... the super powerful processor would allow a PSP and PSP2 games to run well... No UMD have a 64GB built in and a expansion slot.

And release it for the same price as a normal phone, they'd be lucky if they'd have enough stock for review purposes.

im sorry but the PSP games are not the best looking anymore at all. The new stuff on the iphone from ID and Epic and other devs is better looking than the PSP stuff (as it should be as the hardware is way way newer and has better specs).

"Sony should do the clever thing, release the PSP2... which is a 1.2/4GHZ 4.3 inch touch screen phone, with two analogues for slide down, why is this wise? "

Its because they are having to do a hardware revision to deal with overheating issues. Rumor is, its not gonna have a slide out screen. Oh well I think its just a gimmick unless they plan on adding some kinda keyboard support which a little blutooth one could fit around like the official ps dualshock keyboard.

@Mrv321

Spot on, the combination of android and the psn makes it more appealing than any of its competition.

People DO NOT want to spend $300 on a new handheld for some AA and upped poly counts, people will pay that for an android device.

"if they just take a generic phone and combine it with a psp"

Dont know what you mean by a "generic" phone. I expect it to be very competitive as a standalone phone, with PSP compatibility. It wouldnt make sense otherwise.
