To the sound of a resounding “Meh”, Sony Ericsson have publically indicated that they have dropped Symbian off their roadmap for future handsets. Having been a member of the Symbian Foundation since its creation, Sony Ericsson are now jettisoning the aging platform for greener fields, leaving Nokia as the sole steward of the Symbian brand. According to spokesman Aldo Liguori:

“[Sony Ericsson] have no plans for the time being to develop any new products to the Symbian Foundation standard or operating system”

Funnily enough, Sony Ericsson are still part of the Symbian Foundation, they just don’t have any Symbian handsets planned.

Earlier today, Engadget broke an exclusive regarding Sony-Ericsson’s work on an Android gaming handset that is currently “in the late stages of planning.” There have been rumblings of a PlayStation phone for quite some time, and it seems like this device may be Sony finally delivering on those long-standing rumors.

According to Engadget, the device will feature:

  • 3.7-4.1” WVGA screen
  • 5MP camera (may not be final)
  • Slider-phone design, but instead of a QWERTY keyboard, a gamepad
  • Gamepad will have:
    • Touchpad for directional controls instead of joysticks
    • A standard D-pad,
    • Standard PSP buttons
    • Shoulder buttons
  • “Likely” to have a 1GHz Snapdragon Processor
  • Mostly black chassis, some silver highlights (looks like a Captivate crossed with a PSP Go)
  • Will run Android OS “Gingerbread”
  • Phone-specific software skin
  • Will have access to a new and exclusive Android Market Games section
  • Game titles will include some PSX oldies, as well as newer PSP games

ZodTTD and yongzh have released Android’s first PlayStation emulator application, now available in the Android Market for $6.99USD. Remember, that $6.99 does not get you any games or a working BIOS (required to run the emulator), you have to “legally” obtain these on your own time (please do not post links to ROMs or BIOS images in comments, they will be deleted).

But words don’t really do this justice, hit the jump for some sexy video:
