Nexus Two and PlayStation Phone: Brand Denial

If you missed the recent rumors surrounding the Sony Playstation Phone, we doubt you missed the information regarding a successor to the hugely popular Nexus One phone. Both devices having seemingly been confirmed, but both Sony and Samsung are yet to announce them officially.

We have been keeping you updated with progress on the Nexus Two this week, most notably the reveal of an unofficial spec list for the device. Samsung themselves yesterday denied the existance of the handset, even though Gizmodo claimed that their source had some hands-on time with it. Considering that they brought us the first scoop on the iPhone 4, we doubt that they are lying.

Then we have Sony’s PlayStation Phone, which although it has been denied by Sony, various game websites have written reports on the contrary which state that the device is real.

Is it now time for companies to stop with the denials, or would you prefer either device to be protected until a few months before release? One thing is for certain that the iPhone 4 announcement by Steve Jobs at WWDC wasn’t as exciting as previous years due to Gizmodo’s prototype leak.

Do you think the Nexus Two and PlayStation phone are real? If so, tell us why you think Samsung and Sony are denying reports of their existance.

  • I believe the PlayStation Phone is real, even with the Ericsson branding. Sony pushed Google TV into it's line up of televisions, then we have the Xperia X10 phone, which runs Android and is the first phone of the Sony "new standard." So partnerships with Google have been made by Sony, and the PlayStation Phone is needed to push Sony's marketing because the PlayStation 3 (The device all Sony Corp. is depending on) will have its downfall, and a new product has to attract more customers. The current PSP is dead, we can all agree. However, Sony needs to rival the PSP's competitor that out-beaten it… the iPod Touch and iPhone. So with all the reasons stated, there's a huge chance of the PSP Phone's existence. The question is, will Sony do it right?
