Images of a suspected prototype PSP Phone device have been published onto the internet by technology website Engadget.

These images offer what the site claims is the first glimpse of the long-rumored device, first reported on by Gamasutra in June last year, that seeks to bring the Sony co-owned Sony Ericsson mobile phone business and its portable gaming hardware division together in a single product.

The device, which shares a similar styling to that of the PSP Go, is loaded with a version of Google's Android OS, according to Engadget and runs on a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 chip supported by 512MB of RAM. The current PSP, by way of comparison, has a 333MHz processor with 32MB of RAM.

The site claims that the system has a D-pad and shoulder buttons as well as Sony's familiar face button configuration. Engadget reports that while there's no Memory Stick slot on the device, there is support for microSD cards.

[UPDATE: A Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson initially said: "The images are definitely fake" while refusing to offer comment about the existence of the device. Sony's co-owned Sony Ericsson business and SCEE are part of disparate business units.

The company has updated its statement to sites including NowGamer to reflect a 'no comment' approach, calling the reports "rumor and speculation."]
