Sony will be releasing an official PlayStation app for the iPhone, iPod touch and Android based handsets, an application that's not meant to turn your handset into a PlayStation Phone.

The official PlayStation app is coming to parts of Europe—UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands—soon. Don't expect much beyond the opportunity to read the official European PlayStation blog and to be slickly marketed to, but the iPhone and Android app will let you keep an eye on your friends list and trophies.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe reps say they'll keep adding new features and more countries to the app, but no word yet on the software coming to iOS and Android devices outside of Europe.
