Sony Ericsson may have Android 2.1 gaming phone

Sony Ericsson's first Android 2.x-native phone may also be its first to tie into the PSP gaming universe. A leak this week has shown a QWERTY tilt slider from the company marked with the W150 test badge, which is supposedly that used by a PSP phone. It would be dominated by a 5-inch touchscreen and would run Android 2.1; there are supposedly no plans to test 2.2.

Whether or not it's connected to the PSP isn't certain at this point. Sony Ericsson is allegedly testing the drivers and wouldn't have the option of testing games right now. However, the phone doesn't have any physical PSP controls, and the W badge has usually been reserved for Walkman-branded phones.

When the phone would launch is still a mystery, but the description wouldn't have it shipping for some time. [via Unwired View]
