PlayStation Launching Android and iPhone Apps “Very Soon” [PIC]

Sony is set to launch free iPhone and Android apps for Playstation in the very near future, likely in early 2011.

According to the company, the first versions of the apps will come to the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and The Netherlands, with more countries expected soon.

With the 1.0 versions, users will be able to monitor their PlayStation Network trophies as well as friends’ games and online statuses. The apps will also deliver gaming news and PlayStation announcements, and it will let users share news or interesting product details via Twitter (Twitter), Facebook (Facebook) and email.

Basically, you’ll be able to do everything except actually playing games.

System requirements are about what you’d expect. iPhone and iPod touch users will need to be running devices with iOS 4; Android (Android) device owners will need to be running Android 1.6 or higher.

While we’re definitely surprised the apps aren’t going to be available in the U.S. at launch, what we don’t find too shocking is PlayStation’s foray into the world of mobile phones. After all, rumors about the PlayStation Phone have had us and other mobile and gaming bloggers salivating for details for months, and rival Microsoft recently made Xbox Live available to Windows Phone 7 owners.

Here’s a first look at the Android version (above) and iPhone version (below) of the app from the PlayStation blog (blog):
