Since the PSP Phone is already real as the Xperia Play, why not start thinking about its follow-up. This device was designed by Esato board member pavlov’s dog and can be seen in the image below. The Xperia Play 2 (or Play Duo) keeps the sliding design, the portion above that reminds us of the Xperia X10 and the gaming controls.
There’s a quad core A9 CPU inside this newcomer, that’s only a concept right now and the screen is 4.5 inch in diagonal (720p OLED). Expect quite a number of years to pass before you see the next PSP Phone. Just remember how many it took to get here…
If you’ve been swept off your feet by the Sony NGP quad core console, here’s something better: a portable Xbox. Created by Camille Jean (email@example.com) and dubbed Xbox Mini, this concept includes an Xbox pushbutton that when pressed down unlocks the sliding component.
The device will open up like some sort of sci-fi flower (we’re feeling poetic today) and it’ll reveal the bright screen inside, while allowing easy access to the control system. The only thing we don’t love that much is the screen is a bit tiny for today’s standards, but I’ll live with that, if the console becomes real and I get to buy it.
Anything else you’d wish to change about this device?
If I were to choose between the PSP Phone and this gadget, the Consolor HD2 would win the battle, hands down. Created by Joseph Dumary, this concept console features an AMOLED HD screen, displaying Full HD images with an unique level of brilliance. This is the follow-up to the Consolor HD1 design, that received many votes on this website.
Consolor HD2 is able to display local television channels, it performs free calls with other similar consoles and exchanges files. Also, the gadget supports multitasking, photo and video editing and YouTube video publishing. Of course, social networking is also on board and there’s a cartridge system included, too, just like on the good old GameBoy.
However, this cartridge contains a high speed chip, that eliminates loading times. Consolor HD2 comes with two HD cameras, one upfront and one at the rear. Video chat and HD pics are supported, as well as facial recognition. Multiplayer is another feature of this console, paired with a Bluetooth headset, that will keep you in touch with other players.
Joseph Dumary informs us that the device uses the “DP Connect Technology”, that connects it to a TV, in order to watch photos, videos and more. The connection is done without cables, at a maximum distance of 5.5 meters. The console is able to play content on external 2TB hard drives as well and it stores files on the external “HDD WiFi”. I’d choose this console over the PSP Phone any day. How about you?
We’ve shown you a ton of PSP Phone concepts, actually our first post on this site was about such a device and now finally there’s a real handset to look at. Uncovered by Engadget, this PlayStation Phone prototype is actually nifty looking and pretty much everything we predicted it would be: a hybrid between the XPERIA X10 and the PSP Go!.
Apparently, it’ll run Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) and feature a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 CPU, 512MB RAM, 1GB ROM, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth, WiFi and a display with a diagonal that fits in the 3.7 – 4.1 inch range. Notice that between the directional pad and the action buttons there’s a multitouch touchpad, with yet unknown use.
Also, the L and R shoulder buttons are there, on the side of the handset. No release date was mentioned yet, but early 2011 is a safe bet. Once again, these are the very first REAL shots of the PSP Phone… Are you charmed or disappointed?
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’ve seen a brand new console design, so we can only say we’re enjoying Joseph Dumary’s creation, pictured below. We’re talking about the Consolor portable console concept, a HD system that fits in your pocket, supporting multitasking and multimedia features.
Consolor uses a cartridge (with a high speed and HD chip that eliminates loading times) and also supports Internet surfing, email services, television features and radio. There’s also an SD memory card slot on board, plus you can connect the console to your TV for photo/video viewing through a HDMI out port.
The “I+” button allows the user to see recent activities and documents on the console. Also, the same button will allow the user to access the settings menu, plus there’s a Media button with obvious purposes (including video editing, sending photos on Facebook and YouTube playback). 8 players can join in a game session via the Consolor, which is very neat and they can also exchange files via wireless.
This device uses an aluminium shell and glossy plastic on the surface. Its internal memory is a 500GB HDD, that somehow fits in there. We think it’s a great design, that would surely rival Nintendo’s new 3D DS.
Last we heard about the Nintendo DS 2, rumours talked about a console with a 3D display. This could also be the case of the Nintendo 3DS concept, designed by Olivier Demangel and pictured below. It includes a control system reminiscent from the previous DS and the PSP, plus a webcam and two touchscreens.
Whether or not these displays are 3D we don’t know, but the console sure looks great… What are the odds of seeing a portable device with 3D graphics by the end of the year? Phones already have such technologies on board, so why wouldn’t game devices?
