HTC Android smartphones could be PlayStation certified soon

Will HTC be the first company besides Sony to make a PlayStation certified handset? The latest rumours from Pocket-lint could point in that direction. That handset will in such case be running the Android operating system. The list of available PlayStation Certified devices are the Sony PlayStation Vita, Sony Tablet, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and Arc S, Sony Ericsson Xperia Acro, Sony Ericsson Xperia S.

HTC is rumored to announce the news about the PlayStation Certification at the Mobile World Congress in two weeks, but the first device will not be available until the second half of 2012.

HTC has not been doing very well lately so the company could need that extra gaming advantage in the competition with Samsung, LG and Motorola.

I cant see this happening myself. Its Sony's unique weapon to differentiate their phones from other Android handsets.
Also Sony like Apple only like themselves to use their own hardware and software. Look how long it took Sony to dump their Memory Sticks for Micro SD cards !
