According to job advert on Sony’s PlayStation careers’ website, the company is looking for a senior server engineer to join its Online Technology Group based in the throbbing heart of London’s Soho.

The details ask for someone that has a “knowledge/experience of online gaming”, which suggests that the PlayStation Network could be emerging on a PSP-powered smartphone.

However, according to Android blog Android Central, the new phone could be running the latest version of Android (version 3.0 – gingerbread).
