There have been plenty of PSP rumors swirling about, and one of them that erratically pops up here and there is the PSP Phone theory. There has been evidence of Sony's plans for such a unit, but Sony has never officially confirmed anything. However, an eagle-eyed reader has noticed something quite telling in the latest issue of Sony magazine.
As you can see in this photo, the proof is clear- "A new PSP-STYLE PHONE is apparently in development. There are even suggestion that it could be in the shops as early as February." (source-Engadget) Some time ago, we had heard about this possibility from Sony's Jim Ryan, when he said a PSP Phone is "definitely plausible." Many are now starting to wonder if this could be a major announcement at next week's Game Developers Conference, and they're further speculating that this special little unit might actually arrive some time later this year. We'd love to hear something concrete, but hey, we'd like to think Sony Magazine is semi-official to begin with.
This has quickly become one of the primary things we'll be looking for at GDC 2008, so if Sony decides to step forward with their plans for a PSP Phone next week, we'll tell ya immediately.
