Sony Patents Touchscreen Hand Held…


Looks like we’re going to be seeing another hand held from Sony sometime in the unknown future. What is even funnier is the fact that Sony is still up to their old games, taking ideas from Nintendo. Although that could be an unfair claim, we still don’t know exactly what this “Touchscreen Hand Held” can do… but we can only imagine. What surprises me even more is the fact that the patent was passed by the US Patent & Trademark Office with no problem.

Also the patent document shows that it was ex-Sony exec Phil Harrison who was the inventor for this device. Now that he’s with Infogrames, it’s really a wonder why and if Sony will still push this idea through the gate… I don’t know if it is just me but this just seems to be a lot more than a little bit fishy?
