Geohot Set to Turn His Attention to Sony’s Xperia Play

The new mobile device set to launch later this year will receive special attention from George Hotz. Recently Geohot was sued by Sony and lost. However, Mr. Hotz still has a lot of fight left in him. In addition to his recent Sony rap video, he plans to expand his hacking attempts to another device.

My attempts at humor aside, I do take this whole matter very seriously. Again, it’s not about me, I was on the verge of quitting this stuff last June, and I would hate to be the one who sets a reputation for hackers that all a company has to do is sue us and we back down. In fact, I want the opposite reputation set, that the more a company tries to abuse the legal system, the harder we rally back. I will be the first person in line on the launch date of the Xperia Play, and itching to get my hands on the Next GEOHOT Project.

Previously known as the Playstation Phone, Xperia Play is Sony’s upcoming gaming phone with a controller that slides out from underneath the device. Geohot is also accepting donations on his website and he plans to continue to defend himself against Sony with regards to the PS3 firmware hack he created.
