New details on PlayStation app for Android surface

We mentioned a few weeks back that an official PlayStation app was coming to Android devices (and to the iPhone).

Nokia name-checked as Android Honeycomb tablet producer

A casual name-drop in a report on Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets has led to suggestions that Nokia is working with Google on an Android device. DigiTimes claims Google has been giving priority to brand-name handset manufacturers with support for the tablet-centric Honeycomb release, bypassing notebook makers in the process, but Nokia is in among the list of "smartphone players" supposedly working with the search giant. It's most likely an oversight by DigiTimes' writers, but the remaining players on the list - Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC - are all companies we've heard Android tablet rumors about in the past. A similar casual mention pre-holidays tipped Honeycomb for a March 2011 release; now the site is claiming some smartphone manufacturers could have slates running the platform out as early as the latter half of February next year.

Sony Ericsson’s 1GHz XPERIA mini pro replacement leaks

Another new Sony Ericsson smartphone has been spotted, with the unnamed Android slider spotted giving up its benchmark secrets in Chinese forum IT168. Rumored to be a replacement to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini pro, the handset is powered by a 1GHz processor with the Adreno 205 GPU, and has a 3.0-inch 320 x 480 multitouch display. As for that benchmarking, the Sony Ericsson scores 1,553 in Quadrant and 42.5fps in Neocore. In fact the only real annoyance is the flipped button layout on the front, though we're sure most buyers would be willing to overlook that whenever the new handset gets official. [via Engadget]
