The rumor mills are swirling again about the long storied
dream evolution of Sony porting their popular PlayStation Portable brand to a next-gen. handset. We picked-up this article posted on a Spanish blog suggesting an ‘Insiders Report’ claimed the device is actually in the works. While would not be surprised it would be better to dig a more qualified source. That being said, in fact WWJ had pondered the concept in June 2006 with our Viewpoint “Gaming Set to Repeat Mobile Music Success“, basically stating not if but when.
In view of the success of porting the well-known ‘Walkman‘ onto mobile phones, can it be that long before we see the PSP label on a prototype cell phone from Sony Ericsson?
Meanwhile, Mike over at MobileMentalism was also an early adopter to this line of thought and now it would seem a like no-brainer for everyone to predict that Sony Ericsson would be making such a move. Considering their success with the CyberShot and Walkman series phones already deployed and riding nicely on other well-established company brand names. We could take it one-step further now, just for fun, and suggest that the PSP Phone will come complete with SpiderMan 3 pre-installed..
