PlayStation Phone: Release Date Update – Spring 2011?

We have some good news for those of you looking forward to picking up the new PlayStation Phone next year, as some new details have emerged courtesy of a Japanese newspaper report.

According to Kotaku, fresh details on the PS Phone have come from the Asahi Shimbun newspaper, as they have stated that the new release ETA for the ‘not-so-secretive’ PlayStation Phone is Spring of 2011.

Sony has yet to respond to the newspaper report, but the details suggest that the device will be released first in the US and Europe, followed by a worldwide release shortly afterwards.

We know the device is definitely coming, and Sony’s Kaz Hirai even hinted of a release which you can read in our previous article here. Aside from being manufactured by Sony Ericsson, the device will also come with the recently released Google Android 3.0 Gingerbread software.

It’s certainly a nice prospect to think that Sony are planning to release both the PlayStation Phone and PSP2 in the same year. It will be interesting to see how both devices differ. We’ve heard rumors about the PSP2 also running Android, which would definitely make sense, and if it can run Xbox 360 and PS3-quality games which has also been speculated, then it could be Sony’s turn to shine next year.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming PlayStation Phone and PSP2?
