Game on: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play
After countless leaks and a big, splashy Super Bowl ad, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play should finally be officially introduced and we’ll get all the details about the much-rumored PlayStation Phone.
The Xperia Play is expected to run Android 2.3 with a custom user interface, have a 1-GHz processor, 4-inch screen, WiFi, GPS, 3G, Bluetooth and a slide-out gamepad. The gamepad will have multiple physical buttons, a d-pad, two digital nubs which could operate as the “analog” joysticks and shoulder buttons.
Just as interesting, we may get some more details on the PlayStation Suite. This service will bring PlayStation games to many Android phones and it will be how the Xperia Play gets its custom games. We’re excited to see how this service will grow in a future where apps and phones are becoming a major force in gaming.
We’ll definitely be giving you the latest details on the Xperia Play, so look for hands-on videos and more soon. Sony Ericsson may have a few other tricks up its sleeves, too.
