This is surprising. While everyone is talking about a PlayStation phone, Sony announced today official PlayStation App for Android and iOS. The app will be available to download for iPhone and iPod Touch with OS 4 and above, and most Android compatible handsets with a minimum of OS 1.6. There is no mention of Nokia or OVI in the official blog post by sony. It is big news for Apple and Google and a bad news for Nokia.
The app will offer the following features:
- Check out your PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with your friends games and online —- status. – Discover all the latest games, news and hardware for your PlayStation 3, PSP and PlayStation 2. – Read all the announcements on the European PlayStation.Blog. – Share your favourite products or news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.
The first version (1.0) will be available in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and The Netherlands. More details to come on when the App will go live.
