Marketing Week claims that unnamed industry insider sources in Japan and Korea report that the PlayStation phone will incorporate elements of Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) and is being readied for release by Christmas next year (2009).
The same unnamed insiders told Marketing Week that Sony will never consider giving its PlayStation branding to the mobile specialist joint venture Sony Ericsson, as relations between the two companies were 'frosty' following the 'strategic error' of Sony handing over its Walkman branding to Sony Ericsson for use on mobile phones.
Sony Ericsson has recently launched its F305 gaming phone, which features a motion-control style interface.
Neither of the two companies are currently commenting on rumour or speculation surrounding the proposed PlayStation phone.
