More Playstation Phone Videos Reveal Benchmarking

Posted on Dec 11 2010 - 1:13am by Richard Sharp

Another day and another video featuring the fabled Sony Playstation phone, the video is another leap forward to realisation and the closest we have come to seeing a functioning phone. The video shows the ‘prototype’ gaming phone running Qualcomm’s Neocore benchmark app.

The rumoured prototype, known as the Zeus Z1 runs as 24.4 frames per second and although the video does not confirm it is said to run on Android 2.3 – Gingerbread.

Other speculations have been rife over the last few weeks with bloggers suggesting that the device will pack a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor, 512 MB or RAM, a large 4 inch screen and include the ability to expand memory with a micro SD slot.

Other leaks (from within Sony) have suggested that the Playstation Phone will be available to buy in March 2011. We predict that we will perhaps see the phone at CES, or at the very latest at MWC 2011 or Cebit.

Are you looking forward to seeing the phone? What would you include?

Watch the video and tell us what you think.

    This is a call to all the modding, homebrew and emulator creating community.

    PlayStation Phone + physical gaming buttons + Android SDK = the perfect Genesis, (S)NES, Gameboy, GBA emulator.

    The console classics were never meant to be played with a touch screen. The gaming control button calls are all sitting there in the Android 2.3 SDK waiting for a kind programmer to make an unsigned console emulator app 🙂
