PlayStation phone video still The PlayStation phone saga continues with a rumor that claims the PlayStation phone is just a couple months away from being officially announced. We’ve seen some very impressive evidence supporting the existence of the PlayStation phone including photos and video. If a report from Pocket-lint proves to be accurate, the PlayStation phone will debut in February, and will go on sale in April.

Pocket-lint’s sources said the PlayStation phone will not be unveiled next month at CES 2011. Instead, Sony Ericsson will show off the phone for the first time at its press conference during Mobile World Congress in February. Approximately two months later in April, the PlayStation phone will reportedly go on sale in the United Kingdom.

The PlayStation phone is believed to be an Android powered device that runs on Android 2.3, also known as Gingerbread. In addition to having all the mobile goodness smartphones tend to have, the PlayStation phone could have its own section in the Android Marketplace. It also has a touchpad, d-pad and the iconic PlayStation face buttons.

The reported specs for the PlayStation phone aren’t necessarily out of this world. The phone has a 1Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM and a screen that is sized between 3.7 and 4.1 inches.
