Sony Ericsson to launch Android 3.0 Gingerbread based Gaming Platform Smartphone
When the world is curious about the latest version of Googleâ€™s smartphone operating system Android 2.2 and its new features, news from reliable sources are confirming something very hard to believe. Sony Ericsson, a company which has ventured deep into entertainment and casual cellphones instead of the more serious smartphones is now planning to revolutionize how gaming systems work on smartphones.
The company, which has never released an Android 2 smartphone, is planning to launch a complete gaming platform for the next big version of Android, the Android 3.0. The important thing here is, theyâ€™re just not planning it but sources have identified that development work is already underway!
The gaming device being designed by Sony Ericsson is believed to be a hybrid mix of the sorts of Samsung Captivate and the PSP Go i.e. a landscape slider with game controls in place of the typical QWERTY keyboard. The phone will also have a large display, preferably between 3.7 and 4.1 inches wide with WVGA or better resolution, and a supposed 5 megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording, but this isnâ€™t finalized yet. Also, the entire device would run on an 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. The device is also rumored to carry the PlayStation branding in order to attract more customers with the brand name.
Software side of the device will be running on Android 3.0 Gingerbread, and once the device is launched, the Android market will have a new area specifically designed for downloading and installing games. Games will be graphically in the range of PSX or PSP games, enabling Android to host 3D games! Popular game titles for the PSX and PSP might also be in line for their smartphone version which include God of War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and LittleBigPlanet and many more.
Finally, the release date hasnâ€™t been confirmed as yet, but sources have predicted that the launch might be as early as October this year. But you never know when a new rumor pops out. So stay tuned to find out more.
