The slide-out D-Pad and PlayStation-esque buttons make this device appear similar to a regular PSP Go. Don’t be fooled, through, this Android based device is much more powerful, offering a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor and 512MB of RAM. Engadget have pretty much ruled out the fact that this device is a ‘rumor’ with the following quote,
“The PlayStation Phone in the photos we ran last night, and the device reported on back in August is most definitely real. We’re not saying that because we want to believe or because we’re gingerly trying to nab page-views: we’re saying it because we know it to be true.”
As of now, it has been reported that this device is currently known as “Zeus” with SP, although it is not using Android 3.0 firmware right now. Alas, it is stuck with 2.X. No big deal. We look forward to hearing more about this device.
