This can’t be a Sony Ericsson PSP Android phone prototype. Or can it?

Yes, the Sony Ericsson PSP (PlayStation) phone is in the news again. This time, Engadget claims to have photos of a prototype of the handset.

This looks like a Sony Ericsson Vivaz running Android and featuring a sliding gamepad (which is, of course, very PlayStation-esque).

According to Engadget, the PSP phone comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, 1GB ROM, 512MB RAM, MicroSD card support, and a touchscreen display that measures around 4 inches.

Nothing that’s hard to believe here. But the photos probably don’t show a real PSP phone prototype.

That’s because Sony Ericsson states:

“These images are definitely fake.”

So there you have it. Sure enough, Sony Ericsson is most likely working on a PSP Android phone (maybe with Gingerbread), as we’ve heard before. But this just isn’t it.

Update: weird enough, Now Gamer, the website that reported about Sony Ericsson’s statement, now changed the company’s declaration into: “We do not comment on rumour and speculation.”
