The Sony Ericsson Playstation phone has been floating around the rumor mill for about a month now with only some leaked pictures which may or may not be fakes, but there is a definite buzz around the industry all in hopes of learning more. I was personally hoping for a new round of photos, perhaps a video or two but during a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Sony Ericsson Chief Executive Bert Nordberg was quoted as saying “There’s a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere.” Not exactly music to my ears, but I will take it. It’s kind of like knowing you have something coming, but you’re basically saying “Oh gee I don’t know, do we?”. Regardless, Nordberg went on to talk about why their phone division hadn’t ever tapped into their gaming resources before in which he replied “I haven’t dug into that history, but the future may be brighter. Brighter indeed Mr. Nordberg, as we suspect more information about the elusive Playstation phone to surface more and more as holiday time continues along. Hit us up in the comments and let us know if you agree.
Sony Ericsson Chief Executive Bert Nordberg must have just come back from holiday on Glib (it’s one of Greek Islands), because he expertly delivered one of the most urbane quotes on the PlayStation Phone to date. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the executive said on the subject of the device, “There’s a lot of smoke, and I tell you there must be a fire somewhere.” Perhaps it’s in the R&D building.
As if channeling Monty Python’s “Nudge Nudge, Wink Wink” sketch, Nordberg gave another interesting answer when asked why the company’s phone division hadn’t tapped into Sony’s gaming resources before. “I haven’t dug into that history, but the future might be brighter.”
The PlayStation Phone, which the WSJ speculates will carry Sony Ericsson’s Xperia brand, is still a phantom, existing in “read between the lines” executive comments and leaks that allegedly showcase the prototype.
