Seeing as how Sony didn't reveal any details about a possible PlayStation Phone at the CES conference this week, a Chinese website got its hands on a prototype of the device and shared all of the juicy details, from its phone hardware to its gaming attributes.
Chinese website IT168 managed to score a version of the PlayStation Phone, which may not be the final one, mind you, but it's still the best look we had at the new device that is going to be manufactured by Sony's joint phone venture with Ericsson.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, as it might be named, has some pretty impressive hardware for a phone, including a 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 processor, a Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB RAM and 512MB ROM, as well as slots for a SIM card, obviously, a microSD memory card and a micro USB cable.
The PlayStation Phone will use this hardware to display images on a 4-inch screen, with an 854x480 resolution, as well as take pictures with a 5 megapixel camera.
When powered on, the device looks just like any other Sony Ericsson phone from the Xperia lineup, and runs the Android 2.3 operating system.
There's one special feature, however, an application called PlayStation Pocket, which, when you boot it up, puts the phone into "PlayStation" mode.
The menu interface changes to Sony's familiar XMB setup, and you can browse some of the games installed on the device.
The device pictured above and below isn't confirmed to be the production-ready PlayStation Phone, so a few things might change, but it's currently the best look we have at Sony's new product.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play hasn't been officially confirmed by Sony, but according to previous reports, expect it to appear around Spring or Summer of this year.
Check out a few photos of the PlayStation phone below, as well as some comparison shots with the PlayStation Portable Go, on which it is most likely based.
