PlayStation Phone videoed for internet?

Sony yet so far.

The first video footage of what could be the PlayStation Phone has appeared on the internet.

Greek website Techblog (via Endgadget) hosted a clip (below) showing a man thumbing his way around a phone's touch-screen interface. Airy music wafts dreamily in the background.

There's no footage of the phone sliding open to reveal a more PSP-like shape, nor any sign of a game running. The man, presumably bored, settled for menus.

Along with the video comes word that the PlayStation Phone is called the Sony Ericsson Z1 and features the Android Gingerbread.

The validity of the video and device aren't confirmed, so treat this with caution for now.

However, there has been considerable evidence in recent weeks to suggest a Sony Ericsson phone with a PlayStation component exists.

Last week, we heard that Sony will unveil a PlayStation Phone on Thursday, 9th December. The handset itself will arrive in shops in February 2011, apparently.

Earlier that week, Sony Ericsson CEO Bert Nordberg made headlines by stating that, "There's a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere."
