Sony: A PlayStation Phone "Could Happen"

Illustration for article titled Sony: A PlayStation Phone Could Happen

Yup. This again. As Sony's phone partnership with Ericsson runs up record losses, SE boss Hideki Komiyama has again raised the prospect of a PlayStation Phone.


Speaking with The Financial Times, Komiyama says that, as part of his recovery plan for Sony Ericsson (which is bleeding cash), a good idea would be to leverage Sony's brand recognition in the gaming market, and that a PlayStation phone built on SE's current Walkman and Cybershot handsets "could happen".

Hopefully that was just a mistranslation, and Komiyama really said "should never happen, ever".

Ericsson can't make good phones, what Sony needs to do is get those teams together that designed the Sony Vaio, and the PS2 and let them come up w/ the design plans for phones. The reason why Sony may want a PSP phone to happen, is so that they can use the PSP brand to stimulate their failing phone brand. Ericsson can't design phones, don't use their designs.... they're horrible.
