A post by a user of HKGolden, a technology forum based in Hong Kong, posted up pictures of the Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone we've seen rumored recently. Last time I covered a leak on the PlayStation phone, it was reportedly running Android 2.2 and was only branded as a Sony Ericsson phone, but things have changed since then.
Now it seems that, like the next generation X10 Mini we saw last week, Sony Ericsson appears to have succeeded in getting the device running Android 2.3 with their own skin on top. In addition, it appears that the phone will also be branded under the Xperia name.
The source also took a picture of the Xperia X10 side-by-side with the PlayStation phone, giving us a better idea of the dimensions of the device. The photos also show that the hardware for the device has been altered some since the last time we saw it.
Possibly more interesting is the fact that the source had two of the devices, which may be a sign that they are close to releasing the handsets onto the market. CES is likely too early, but Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February might be the time when Sony Ericsson finally unveils this device, and maybe the X10 Mini replacement as well, especially since their CEO said as much back in February.
Head on over to the source for more photos.
