Sony-Ericsson Patent Unveils PSP Phone Design

Face it. It was only a matter of time before Sony took a look at its mobile phone division and went “Hmm…maybe we should do a little PSP-integration…” Sure enough, this recent patent filing shows just that. Could a new Sony-Ericsson phone be coming out that plays like a PSP? Quite possibly.

If you take a look at the patent, you’ll see the screen flips so that when not in use for games, the phone is still completely functional. Flip the screen, and you have a button layout extremely similar to that of the PSP. This thing even looks like it could handle mobile TV, which would be quite possible on AT&T’s 3G network. Not much information is known about this phone currently, but expect more in the coming months.
