Update: Sony calls upcoming PlayStation Phone 'speculation' Earlier this week, the WSJ reported that Sony is finally ready to create a PlayStation-branded smartphone, one that will help it compete against the iPhone, and Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 line.
Additionally, the company will be creating "a portable device that blurs distinctions among a netbook, an e-reader and a PlayStation Portable, or PSP," one that it hopes will compete against the iPad and net/smartbooks.

The products have a target launch in 2010, but prices are nowhere near finalized.

Today, the company has declined comment on the report, calling it "speculation."

"As already announced, Sony (including SCE) and Sony Ericsson have been strengthening their collaboration in the networked mobile space. However, it is not our strategy to discuss future products or business plan before we make a formal announcement. Any media report that suggests details of the product or business is based on speculation," read the press release.

"Speculation," just like the slim PS3, and the PSP Go.

Sony was never very good at keeping secrets. And they can blame their staff for that, maybe they should review who breaks the confidentiality clause in their contracts.

On topic though, as long as its a upgrade (not a remake like the PSPgo) I'm game.
