The PlayStation Phone has been quite a hot topic ever since it leaked a few days ago, and now it's about to get even hotter. More images and details of the PlayStation Phone have leaked out and, as you can see, we're now getting a closer look at what makes the device tick. Codenamed "Zeus," the phone is packing an 8GB microSD card and at least 512MB of internal storage, though it could have up to 1GB of memory built in when it's released. As you could probably guess, the phone won't win any awards for its thinness, clocking it at around 17mm thick (around the same size as an HTC Touch Pro 2 or a PSPgo). Finally, though the handset in the image above is running Android 2.2, there are some units floating around with Android 3.0 on board, and it's unlikely that Froyo will be present when it's time to launch.
Whenever the PlayStation Phone finally launches, I'll be interested to see how gamers end up responding to it. Will they flock to it so that they no longer have to carry both a phone and a dedicated gaming device, or will they prefer to keep the two experiences separate because of battery life concerns, software selection, or some other reason? I've got a feeling that this special Sony Marketplace is going to be a big part of the device that could potentially make or break the phone's success. If there is enough quality games available, the PlayStation Phone has a solid hit at becoming a hit. After all, I'm sure just about everyone would love to consolidate the number of products they carry with them on a daily basis. The hardware looks like it's coming together; we'll just have to wait and see what kind of developer support the PlayStation Phone gets before we can begin to predict its future.
