New Sony phone works with PS3, PlayTV

Aino and now you know.

The brand new Sony Ericsson Aino touch-screen mobile phone allows remote control of PlayStation 3 media, including support for recorded PlayTV content if you live in France, Germany, Italy, Spain or the UK

It works just like the PSP, then, and bosses the bigger console around over local and internet connections.

This is as close as Sony Ericsson can get to integrating the PlayStation brand in their products, having been deemed unworthy of the "prestigious" gaming brand.

The Aino also pulls media from PCs over Wi-Fi, has a three-inch screen, wireless headphones and 8.1 megapixel camera. It sets sound and vision free, according to the company blurb.

Aino, I'll just use the same joke again
