French gadget enthusiast blog Nowhereelse has reportedly received a copy of an invitation to a mysterious press event early next month. The event, as the invitation states, is supposedly “the most awaited event of the past 10 years.” While the authenticity of the invitation is anything but confirmed, the implication is clear: Sony Ericsson will supposedly unveil its PlayStation Phone on December 9th. While no specific mention of the PS Phone is made on the invite, the standard PlayStation icons accompanied by a matching phone icon speaks loud and clear.
Alleged images of the Sony Ericsson PlayStation Phone were revealed last month and are believed to be authentic. As such, it is reasonable to believe an announcement might not be far behind. With holiday shopping kicking into high gear this week, a December 9th announcement of this magnitude would be a bizarre move at best — then again, this is Sony Ericsson we’re talking about here, so anything is possible. The source of this rumor is definitely hit or miss, but let’s all cross our fingers and hope for the best.
