Sony Ericsson CEO raises hopes for PSP mobile phone

Sony Ericsson’s chief executive officer has revealed that a Playstation mobile phone figures in the company’s plans.

In a candid interview with the Financial Times, Hideki Komiyama said that a PSP handset “could happen”.

The revelation comes after Sony recently announced plans to release the PSP GO! - a dedicated gaming device - which was interpreted as a sign that it was no longer considering a Playstation phone.

Sony Ericsson, the world’s fourth-largest mobile phone manufacturer, has been among the companies hardest hit by the economic downturn.

Last month the firm revealed that it posted a pre-tax loss of £316 million during the first three months of this year – a performance it blamed on cash-strapped consumers’ reluctance to invest in new handsets.

Hopes of an improved performance this year will hinge on the fortunes of the forthcoming Idou 12 megapixel cameraphone and a successor to the Xperia X1.
