Sony Ericsson F305 motion-gaming phone gets official

Sony Ericsson also sets their eyes on the youth with one of their latest phone announcements, the Sony Ericsson F305. This is the phone that some have called the rumored PSP phone, but until it looks as sick as the original, we’re calling it just another gaming-oriented mobile, from Sony Ericsson.

The F305 is a cellphone, first and foremost, and it’s a quadband GSM that gives up to 8 hours talk time and 400 on standby. Bluetooth and USB connectivity is built-in, and there’s a 2 megapixel camera thrown in for good measure. But the Sony Ericsson F305 is also a gaming phone, and for this reason you’ll find a bevy of additions to its feature set, and the accessories that it comes with.

The Sony Ericsson F305 comes with three games pre-loaded, which are “Bowling”, “Bass fishing” and “Jockey,” all of which should let users “encounter gaming in a completely new way,” says Sony Ericsson.

For a gaming phone, this thing only has a 2-inch screen with 175 x 220 pixel screen resolution. What happened to the PSP’s 4.5-inch high-res screen, right? Anyway, this phone’s real selling point is the built-in motion sensors, which should be able to work just like it does in the Nintendo Wii.

Here are the Sony Ericsson F305′s features at a glance:
