Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play was going to be a unique Android phone that would become a great tech product for video game devotees, and this is not only a phone for video games, it also features the latest high-end specs for smartphones.
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play will be powered by Qualcomm MSM8655 1GHz processor, Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB RAM and 1GB of ROM, the device is expected to have a 4 or 4.2 inch display. The new thing here is a microSD slot, that will replace the Memory Stick for expandable storage and the phone will be the first to allow access to the Sony Marketplace where you can buy games for the new Android 2.3 OS.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play will be loaded with Andoird Gingerbread out of the box.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash light.
PlayStation Pocket appears in the Xperia Play menu, so it is likely that will be the forthcoming game service from SE.
The phone in this review is just a test device, but the appearance has been very close to the official version, the system interface and the public version of Android 2.3 also made a small changes. Unfortunately, the PlayStation Pocket gaming platform has not opened, so the interface is visible, but there is no one related content.
Xperia Play looks like a normal Android phone if you don’t slide it, there isn’t any different from the big screen with a standard four function keys, the front top of the screen also has a video camera, light sensor and proximity sensor. Just slide the phone and you can see on the PSP, the unique Xperia Play game buttons are all moved to the slide part, including the familiar up and down around the four arrow keys, triangle / square / circle / cross on other PS games button, start button , selection keys, and the option to set button. But remember, this is and engineering sample, the final version may not like this phone.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play uses BST-41 battery, the capacity is 1500mAh, and it’s the same like the one in X10.
