    Sony Ericsson is preparing to release a sort of PSP-Android hybrid, that looks set to redefine how gaming can work on a phone platform.

    Details remain pretty sketchy, but the new device is expected to run the upcoming Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) software, along with an entirely new gaming friendly ecosystem powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The form factor is expected to be a slider phone, but with PSP-style gaming controls instead of the normal QWERTY keyboard as shown in the mockup picture. The display resolution is expected to be at least WVGA, and a 5 megapixel camera might also be part of the package.

    Sony Ericsson has done an admirable job keeping this one under wraps, especially when you consider that it could debut as soon as October.
