Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone leaked & previewed

Sony Ericsson refused to talk PlayStation when we met with them yesterday and fondled the XPERIA Arc, but that isn't stopping the persistent leaks of the SE PlayStation Phone itself (aka the XPERIA Play). Chinese site IT168 managed to grab an extended play with the gaming smartphone, finding it powered by Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 and Adreno 205 GPU. Meanwhile there was also a preloaded PlayStation Pocket app store.

Sony Ericsson has certainly kicked off their 2011 in a strong way, launching the XPERIA Arc at CES 2011 yesterday. We grabbed some hands-on time with the XPERIA Arc today and came away suitably impressed; it's not only thin - 9mm at the ends, and just 8.7mm in the middle - but the 4.2-inch Reality Display takes on Super AMOLED and holds its head up high. More details after the cut.

Sony Ericsson's Anzu has apparently grown up and become the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, according to the latest leaks, with the super-slim Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone expected to make its official debut at CES 2011 this week.

Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone Shows Off Android 2.3, New Logos

While we're left waiting for Sony Ericsson to make the PlayStation Phone official, we'll just have to accept the continuous leaks of the device that keep popping up. This time around, the lucky owner manages to have two on hand to show off. However, we do get to see what version of Android the device, which will be known as either the Zeus Zi or Xperia Play (more than likely) when it launches, is running -- along with a new logo on the bottom-left of the slide-out board.
