Sony Patent Hints at PlayStation Phone, Possible Mystery Device?

Illustration for article titled Sony Patent Hints at PlayStation Phone, Possible Mystery Device?

The prospect of a PSP phone looks even more likely now that we've seen Sony's patent for a touchscreen handheld. The patent describes a device with "digital tactile pixels" that respond to touch and give feedback via vibration. This patent was submitted by Sony Computer Entertainment, the group behind PlayStation, and not Ericsson, like the last alleged PSP phone patent. The mystery device is covered to play games and music and browse the web, but also make phone calls, so what else could it be? [patent via Tech Digest]

Sony, whatever you do, PLZ don't drop the PSP controller. Sure make it touch screen, but leave us the analog stick (or possibly 2?) and the buttons.
