389w ago - After several months of rumors, it has just been confirmed that Sony is currently indeed working on the Playstation Phone project to bring the power of a video game console to a mobile phone device. A high ranking official inside Sony Japan said that Sony wants to grab the two fastest growing electronics markets at once with the Playstation Phone, which are : gaming and mobile telecommunication.

It has also been confirmed that Sony had already submitted an application for a mobile telecommunication device with video games functions to the U.S. Patents and Trademark Office.

When asked about the project, Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment's Co Chief Operating Officer said that : " The Playstation is a proven success and so is Sony Ericsson. Convergence with the two arms working together is definitely plausible. It is hugely intellectually seductive to have a console oriented phone. "

Diptarup Chakraborti, a Principal Analyst at Gartner Research Firm also said that : " While the Cybershot and Walkman are better selling brands from the Sony fold, Playstation almost enjoys cult status and two strong brands, Sony Ericsson and Playstation would make a strong success story for Sony."

The exact launch date for the Playstation Phone is currently still unknown, but I will let you know when there is any new information about the Playstation Phone development
