PlayStation Phone speculation intensified Wednesday as blog Engadget showed off what appears to be an actual Sony Ericsson phone with PlayStation buttons.
Sony declined to comment on the rumor (same as last time this rumor surfaced), but Engadget reports that it's heading to market "soon" -- like 2011 soon. The prototype unit shown in the blog's photos has a long multitouch enabled touchpad in the center, support for microSD cards, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is 3.7 to 4.1 inches.
Given Sony's push for a fully integrated PlayStation Network across all its devices, a PlayStation Phone doesn't seem outlandish. Getting it to market right after the Windows Phone 7, however, seems risky.
