Sony PlayStation Phone

Increasing convergence in cellphones has pressured even long-term opponents such as Apple to introduce their own models in the near future. Sony is familiar with the concept, having collaborated with Swedish cellphone maker Ericsson on numerous Walkman-branded music phones, but has always maintained its cellphone line at arm's length from its other products. That differentiation will soon end through the introduction of a PlayStation phone, according to Gamer Scan. Declining to go into further details, Sony-Ericsson senior vice president Rikki Sakaguchi said that the partnership was "working on something" that included gaming as a major complement to general cellphone functions. Sony is also planning to connect its WEGA television brand with future cellphones that would support live mobile video, Sakaguchi said. Both brands are expected to make their way into the Sony-Ericsson lineup within the next two years.
