New video shows legit-looking PlayStation phone in action

After Engadget released a less-than convincing video of the alleged PlayStation phone earlier this week, the site is following up with a much more thorough look. The Zeus (as it’s being called) appears to be running Android Gingerbread (no surprise there), and the hardware also features a PlayStation icon that is never pressed in the demo. The video also fails to provide a look at the device playing any games either, but the icon at least makes us assume it will run PlayStation games.

You do get a good peak at the home screen along with the phone’s nice, wide display, as well as an idea of how responsive the phone is (aside from a little lagging, it looks pretty quick).

Sony’s CEO recently alluded to the device’s introduction, which could be only a few months away.

Fortunately, Google is rolling out a redesigned Editors' Choice section today, July 19, that delivers more curated recommendations to users in simple, brief packages.

There are a couple app guides already live, like the five essential road trip apps, or the best apps for learning a new language. Google Play's editors have handpicked a selection of apps for a variety of categories, and each one is accompanied by a quick blurb as well as three standout features.
