Exclusive : Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone Expected In March 2011

The Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone, also known internally as the Zeus, is not only well alive, but we can exclusively reveal that Sony Ericsson has committed to a release month.

One of our sources at the company has confirmed that the phone will be launched in March next year which means that device will be present at Cebit 2011 in Germany, the global tech conference that will take place from the 1st to the 5th of March 2011.

We understand that the phone is planned to be presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2011 but won't be released to the general public until the following month.

Also, the phone was referred to as the Playstation Phone rather than the PSP phone, something that might cause some confusion on the market.

The phone is expected to be similar size-wise to the Sony PSP Go and run Android OS 2.3.

It is likely to have 512MB RAM, 8GB microSD card, an ARM processor and a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen. You can find more about the Playstation Phone/Zeus here.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
