The last we heard on the Sony Playstation Phone front was a hint from Sony Ericsson CEO, Bert Nordberg who suggested that the highly rumoured handset could be making its public debut at Mobile World Congress in February. However, we might not have to wait until next year to meet it, if this leaked invite to a launch event in France on December 9th turns out to be for said gaming device.
While our sceptical side can’t help but think that it could be a fake, all signs are pointing towards an event that is Playstation orientated as the invite features the familiar control buttons plus an additional icon with a phone inside.
We certainly weren’t banking on the Playstation Phone being made official this side of 2011, but the handset is said to be running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is set to land in the coming weeks. With Christmas fast approaching, we wouldn’t be surprised if the phone arrived just in time to find its way into people’s stockings either.
Could our wait for the Playstation Phone finally be over on December 9th? It’s not too long until we find out!
