Sony Ericsson prepares new gaming smartphone

Gingerbread Android 3.0 based
It appears that Android’s lackluster showing in the field of gaming is set to change as Engadget reports that Sony Ericsson is on track to deliver an Android based gaming platform/smartphone.

The company is allegedly working around the clock on this “brand new gaming platform, ecosystem, and device”. The device is in the late stages of planning and possible cooperation with Google isn’t ruled out.

The device is said to be something like a Samsung Captivate meets PSP Go. It’s a landscape slider phone that will feature a D-pad and a long touch pad for analog controls. Naturally, standard PSP keys are there as well.

The display should be between 3.7 and 4.1 inches (WVGA or better) and the device should have a 5MP camera, although the latter is not yet a final spec. Reportedly, all this should run on a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.

The device is allegedly branded as Xperia, but we’ll probably see PlayStation branding as well. It will run on Android 3.0 Gingerbread, with further talk of possible Android Market for games and promises of actual 3D gaming on Android platforms.
