Mock up, speculation, booooring.

Until I see something like...official, I'm really not interested.

It's just an idea atm. Sony has no plans to make one.

I saw it in a local magazine the other day.

The iPhone feels pretty bulky and clunky to me.

That said, I'm pretty indifferent to this PSPhone. I was hoping the PSPhone would be the next PSP and as such a generation leap.

I hope this happens just so the PSP goes down in price even more. I'd be all over a PSP if it was just a tiny bit cheaper.

I used to until they basically released the same phone a dozen times in about 3 years. I think I'm a Nokia guy now. Especially since a new version of Snakes, the best thing EVER, was announced.

I would hope that Sony would have learned something for the N-Gage, as in never make one of those.

Yeah, the w750i turned me onto SE phones in a big way, but then the w800, w850 etc were just tiny incremental improvements.

I LOVE the Cybershot / k phones. Sony Ericsson phones at 3.2 megapixels, stand up to a lot of these newer 5 megapixel phones in terms of image quality. And of course, the latest models are 5 megapixels themselves.

I also really love the user interface on Sony phones... by the looks of it, they're also throwing in an XMB style interface on new phones for managing media. Which I believe to be a good thing.

Despite all that, I went with the LG Viewty recently. It was free on my plan, and yes touch screen is a bit gimmicky and the flash based GUI is a bit iffy, but the phone has great features, a nice camera and beautiful aesthetic.

If Sony DO make a PSPhone, I'll look at it very seriously though.

Well that actually looks pretty nice. It looks like they could use some of the idea from this phone on the next PSP. I'm not saying that the D-pad shouldn't be in front, but veing able to slide the back and having extra buttons for other purposes(keyboard perhaps) would be pretty cool.

I've always wanted to know how XMB would be like as a phone UI. I like S-E's U250 platform, but it is getting a bit outdated by now.

I dunno, PSP2K get pretty good battery life, and this thing looks even smaller.

Remote play for music/videos anywhere in the world would be SICK!

XMB on mobile phones does exist. I think it was shown by someone at sony during some sort of trade show

I just remembered that some of S-E's newer top-tier feature phones uses XMB. But it was only for the media section.

The nub is pretty clear, and the shoulder buttons would probably be relegated to the two Confirm/Deny buttons.

But as has been said, this is a mockup anyway.

I'd like a PSP2 with MS Duo Games, but this fake is pretty nice.
Practically all new Sony Hardwares use XMB Style menu.

This is what PSP2 needs to be.

Make games all downloadable content. And make a stand alone PSP2 like the ipod touch is to the iphone.

You can't compare the iphone and PSP,in fact iphone is slimer than PSP slim. It will be very bulky if they combine PSP tech with phone tech.


Although,a PSP phone wouldn't be such a bad idea.
Japan loves handheld & mobile phone, so PSP phone = win win win
