We’d heard rumors that the PlayStation Phone was being canned – at least for the time being – for whatever reason, but it seems Sony Ericsson France thinks otherwise according to this invitation to French press regarding a December 9th unveiling. Below the text – which mentions SE France’s Pierre Perron – lies images of 5 PlayStation-style buttons: the four face buttons you’d see on a PlayStation controller, plus a phone icon in similar fashion. Could we really be nearing an announcement? We believe the device is real, obviously, as evidence has been piling up over the past couple of months.
We’re just wondering why this is going down in France, of all places. (That’s not to say France isn’t a fine country to unveil an innovative device in, it’s just that you would think of all European venues, Sony Ericsson would choose their home turf in the UK.) We’ll be circling the date on our calendar and looking out for any and everything pertaining to a PSP phone. [Nowhereelse via MobileCrunch]
