Sony’s iPad Competitor: PSP Phone

Sony are thought to be working on a new gaming device and handset rolled into one, the PSP phone. The consumer electronics giant have certainly set themselves a hard target, and that is to compete with not only the Apple iPhone but the upcoming iPad as well.

This is not the first time that we have heard rumors of a PlayStation Portable phone, along with the Microsoft Zune as well. Both mythical devices are thought to be launching soon, but we have no exact date.

Mashable reports that a source of WSJ said that Sony is now planning on looking at a number of their other devices in the hope of launching a sort of hybrid product. This tells us that Sony would team up with their current handset partners Ericsson, do not hold me to that, this is just a gut feeling.

Until then, let us know what you would like to see from a PSP Phone.
