March 2011 launch for PS Phone?

Internal sources promise imminent reveal.

The much-rumoured PlayStation Phone will launch in March next year, so say anonymous Sony sources.

According to ITProPortal's insider, the gadget will be officially launched at Cebit 2011 in Germany - a global tech conference taking place between 1st and 5th March.

However, it'll also apparently be shown at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.

Of course, last month a rumour circulated that Sony would be revealing the phone tomorrow, so who to believe?

Very little is known for sure about the new hardware but apparently the phone's screen is "on par" with the iPhone's Retina screen. It'll run Google's Android OS, with games priced at mobile game rates, not PSP rates.

Reports suggest it will cost around $500 (318 approx), including five free games.
