I don’t normally care for news about new smartphones, but my jaw literally dropped when I saw photos of the upcoming Sony-Ericsson PlayStation Phone from Engadget. This device is for real and will be available sometime in 2011, powered by Android 3.0 and a new Sony Marketplace that allows you to buy and download games designed just for this phone. It’s also packed with some powerful hardware – 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655, 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, as well as a decently-sized screen at around 3.7 to 4.1 inches. Though you can’t use the good old-fashioned Memory Stick on this device to increase memory, the PlayStation Phone does have support for MicroSD cards. The slideout board has the familiar PlayStation buttons as well as a long multitouch pad in the center.

Some people are hoping for a 2010 holiday release, but I wouldn’t mind waiting until 2011 if it means ironing out the kinks and bugs on the device. I really hope the PlayStation Phone proves to be a solid smartphone because if it is, I’m definitely saving up for this one.
