PlayStation phone: December 9th

There’s no word on a street date just yet, but it appears as though the PlayStation phone will at least be announced in time for the holidays, on Thursday, December 9th, at 8pm French time. That’s what a purported invitation, found over at says. No further information is revealed in the snapshot.

The paper reads:

“Pierre Perron and his team invite you to the most anticipated presentation of the past 10 years… Thursday, December 9th, at 8pm”

Pierre Perron is Sony Ericcson France’s CEO. Those icons are pretty enticing, right? And while it may not be the most anticipated launch in ten years, it’s pretty freaking huge, if real. There has been tremendous buzz surrounding photos of the device, which is likely to bear the XPERIA brand though it’s reportedly being called Zeus internally. The big news–the real game changer–could be the announcement of a dedicated game market. Could mobile game rentals be in our future?
