Just as promised, Sony Ericsson finally launched their worst kept secret, the Xperia PLAY, or as what everyone likes to call it, the PlayStation Phone.
This gaming phone runs on a 1GHz Scorpion ARM v7 processor complemented by 512MB RAM, and features a rear-mounted 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, DLNA support, microSD card slot (supports up 32GB, bundled with 8GB card), a 4-inch 480-854 resolution touchscreen, and runs on Android 2.3. An embedded Adreno chip mans the graphics department, which reportedly provides 3D mobile gaming playback at 60fps with minimal power consumption.
Surprisingly, unlike Sony Ericsson’s other new Android offerings – the Xperia Arc, Xperia pro, and Xperia neo, this one doesn’t come with Mobile BRAVIA graphics engine or the Exmor R image sensor. We can only guess as to why they chose not to include these in the Xperia PLAY, but pricing could have been a major issue here.
Anyway, here’s the official promotional of the Xperia PLAY:
When will the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY hit stores? It’s scheduled to roll out to select markets beginning next month. Its price, however, still remains a mystery.
In the meantime, you can check out the full press release here.
So, how about it guys? Now that everything’s official, what are you thoughts on the Xperia PLAY? Are you looking forward to its local launch? Personally, I’m not much of a gaming person so my heart still belongs to the Xperia arc, but how about you guys?
