The Playstation Phone... isn't real.

It's hard to believe that what we're looking at is real -- but we assure you, the picture above is in fact the PlayStation Phone you've long been waiting for. As we reported back in August, the device you see is headed into the market soon, likely boasting Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), along with a custom Sony Marketplace which will allow you to purchase and download games designed for the new platform. The device snapped up top (and in our gallery below) is sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (a chip similar to the one found in the G2, but 200MHz faster), 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is in the range of 3.7 to 4.1 inches. Looking almost identical to the mockup we hit you with this summer, the handset does indeed have a long touchpad in the center which is apparently multitouch, and you can see in the photos that it's still bearing those familiar PlayStation shoulder buttons. For Sony buffs, you'll be interested to know that there's no Memory Stick slot here, but there is support for microSD cards.

The particular model in these shots is still in prototyping mode. As such, the unit doesn't have a custom skin (not even SE's Timescape design seen on the Xperia devices), and is said to be rather buggy. We're digging into more facts as we speak, but it's likely that much of what we reported earlier is still accurate, and though the device could still be headed for a 2010 release, 2011 is looking much more realistic. Still, there's a lot of time between now and the holidays... so keep your fingers crossed!

And in the event that there is mention of that, and I didn't see it, then derp.
Oh, hey, they are smart.

Edit: Phone looks kinda cool, actually. And they have something that the iPhone doesn't: tangible buttons.

Oh dang, I want this.

But, as with any system, it all depends on the games.

That's just spooky, maybe this won't flop like our favorite N-gage system.

Well if it's any credit, unlike the N-Gage, this one doesn't look like a turd.

If you like it, buy it. Who cares who makes it, if it's good it's good.

I can't imagine actually using this as a phone, but otherwise I guess it looks pretty good.

False alarm, guys. It's fake.

How about we NOT call it fake or real until the rest of the gaming websites start covering it.

Exactly. No use fussing about it until this happens. But it is a cool concept, though I'm not really one to buy into things until I see reviews.
