After showing us a nifty iPad 2 concept, Joy Studios now reveals a Sony Playstation Portable Phone design. This device is based on Android 2.2 and it’ll support an update to Android 3.0 in the future. Also, it comes with a 3.8 inch Sony Super LCD touchscreen, supporting a 480 x 847 pixel resolution.
The portable console’s specs list includes GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G+, a 5MP camera, 720p video capture and mini HDMI out. 32 gigs of memory are available for you and a sliding control mechanism similar to the one on the PSP Go console.
Actually this PSP Phone concept is not that different comparing to latest PSP version, except for the connectivity options, memory and OS.
As we’re getting closer to what may be the launch of the very first PSP Phone, there’s another nifty concept of the device to glance at. Pictured below, the PSP Phone design made by iSuriv is based on the Sony Mylo 2 combined with a PSP and an XPERIA handset.
The supposed specs of the device include a 5 inch Super AMOLED screen, a Cortex A9 CPU, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, plus 4G and an accelerometer. iSuriv also wants an accelerometer on the console phone, a proximity sensor, a light sensor and gyroscope. The internal memory will be 8/16GB, accompanied by a microSD slot, while the camera at the back will be an 8MP unit with LED flash and capable of 720p video recording.
A front 3MP unit will also be included, as for the input, it will be handled by a virtual QWERTY keyboard, accompanied by gaming controls when using the gaming feature. Combine this with what we already know about the supposed Sony Ericsson PSP Phone and you’ve got yourself a pretty promising console and handset.
Everybody’s going nuts with PSP Phone designs these days, but this time we have an interesting approach to the matter. Terrillo Walls created the Sony Ericsson Glory handset, a very slim gaming phone with PSP-like features. Considering the size of the device and how slim it is, this would make a pretty good tablet, don’t you think (if it were bigger)?
Sony Ericsson Glory runs Android 2.2 and it comes with a 1.3 GHz dual core Tegra 3 processor and a 4 inch multitouch display. The handset supports social networking features and uses the PlayStation Home service, a community-based social networking offer from Sony. This means that you’ll connect to your PS3 and the PSN account using this device.
Well “video” is a strong word for a single pic with a song in the background, but we’ll give this design credit for its looks, not the presentation method. Created by Casper-Zeta, the following PSP Phone concept combines the looks of XPERIA X10 with the form factor of PSP Go.
The result is a gaming smartphone with sliding controls, a directional pad, a large touchscren (4 inch maybe?), Google Chrome support, Android on board (2.2/3.0) and all the goodies usually associated with XPERIA devices. Shoulder buttons are also included, as you can see. What do you think? Have PSP Phone designs changed much over the past year?
It’s been a while since we saw the last Playstation Phone, but here’s another design, created by Frank Tobias, also known as Remort1, on the Esato board. The back side of the PSP Phone reminds us of the Playstation3 console, while the front side is very basic, with a full touchscreen and Home button.
We have to mention that you can find more of Frank Tobias’ works on this site, if you’re curious. In the meantime, we wonder how Windows Phone 7 would look on this sleek Playstation Phone, although the Xbox support in the OS kinda cancels out the whole thing.
It’s probably been a year or so since we’ve last heard about a PSP Phone or a concept in these parts, but thanks to Esato board member juris15, the idea gets resurrected. After showing us his cool SE Aino II design, he rebrands it as Aino pro and also creates a Sony Ericsson Aino Playstation concept, shown below (click to enlarge).
The Aino Pro (U10) comes with a full touchscreen display, 720P HD recording, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microUSB connectors and 2 stereo speakers with 3D effect. The Aino Playstation Phone also uses a slide-out section, complete with gaming controls (D-pad, action keys and 2 analog sticks), plus full PSP/PS3 remote play.
How about taking fun on the road? Designer Antoine Brieux created a concept gaming device that’s able to integrate a smartphone and provide some extra functionality for productivity freaks. The device is known as the WOOGA and it gets pictured in the following images.
The portable console WOOGA includes a special space that hosts your phone thanks to a bunch of keeping parts. The handset will communicate wit h this device, perhaps via Bluetooth, but what we know for sure is that this console wannabe can be used in a game configuration, as seen in the images below.
There’s also a more smartphone-like configuration, that makes the device look more like a netbook than a console. WOOGA incorporates stereo speakers, an automatic lock system, a large keyboard and a Li-Ion battery on the netbook side. On the exterior gaming side, you’ll find configurable game buttons, a directional pad, a rubber handgrip and a 3.5mm audio jack.
There were a few Nokia fans who regretted the canning of the N-Gage gaming phone series, but there is still hope for this idea, specially if you believe in concepts. The folks of Recombu created the Nokia Ovi Orion, a gaming phone design, pictured below.
Nokia Ovi Orion looks like a combo between a Palm Pre and an iPhone, with a strange QWERTY keyboard and a hidden one line display at the back. This bizarre design might make gaming more user-friendly, but what’s really important is the front multitouch capacitive touchscreen, with a huge diagonal, hopefully.
We wouldn’t be surprised if a Tegra or Snapdragon CPU was on board too, as well as HDMI out and a decent bunch of speakers. The question is: does Nokia have the software platform for such a device? Here’s a short video demo of the concept gaming phone:
It’s been a while since we last saw a gaming phone on this site, but here’s a brand new design, courtesy of Thomas Broadbent. This gaming phone combines the features of a portable console with the ones of a regular handset. This device comes with a swivel opening mechanism, that allows you to turn the phone into a gaming controller.
The same concept uses a “life light”, showing how much life your opponents have and a microSD card slot for extra memory and storage space for games downloaded from the Internet. There’s also a 3.2 megapixel camera on board, a USB charger/connection port and a full colour screen looking very hot.
We absolutely love the design of this handset and think it can easily rival the new PSP and even the iPhone’s gaming abilities.
Wilson Song created a pretty cool concept phone, Samsung WM, a stylish watch mobile combo, that’s also got the features of a portable console. You can wear the device on your wrist and play games with the aid of its embedded technologies, like motion sensing and a “bend interface”.
Samsung WM comes with a flexible wide display, earphones, a stylus and games that rely on motion capture technology. There’s also a camera on board, at the back side of the device and this phone is cool enough for both women and men to wear on their wrists.
