    Rumors can be confirmed by these pictures. The screen on the system seems to be around the same size as the PSP Go's screen and is indeed a touch screen. There is a touch pad between the two sets of buttons, containing what look like two raised sensors, possibly to provide dual analog control. It is a possibility that these would be a replacement of the current analog sticks; as seen on the pictures the touch pad does have two circles on opposite corners.

    The device you see is headed into the market soon, likely boasting Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), along with a custom Sony Marketplace which will allow you to purchase and download games designed for the new platform. The device snapped up top (and in our gallery below) is sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (a chip similar to the one found in the G2, but 200MHz faster), 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is in the range of 3.7 to 4.1 inches. Looking almost identical to the mockup we hit you with this summer, the handset does indeed have a long touchpad in the center which is apparently multitouch, and you can see in the photos that it's still bearing those familiar PlayStation shoulder buttons. For Sony buffs, you'll be interested to know that there's no Memory Stick slot here, but there is support for microSD cards.

    Overall this system and phone looks simply beautiful and if speculations on graphics capability are correct, this could finally be the gaming phone many have wished for.

    The particular model in these shots is still in prototyping mode. As such, the unit doesn't have a custom skin (not even SE's Timescape design seen on the Xperia devices), and is said to be rather buggy. We're digging into more facts as we speak, but it's likely that much of what we reported earlier is still accurate, and though the device could still be headed for a 2010 release, 2011 is looking much more realistic. Still, there's a lot of time between now and the holidays... so keep your fingers crossed!
