Xperia από την Sony
After months of speculation, confirmation and deliberation, the Xperia Play has finally been officially announced by Sony and will be available for purchase as early as March. The Xperia Play phone will be running Android 2.3 on release and will be the first PlayStation Certified phone ever released. The phone will also have a design fairly reminiscent of the PSPgo, with a 4-inch multi-touch LCD screen, a digital D-pad, the Sony-version of ABXY, and two shoulder buttons as well. Following suit with the NGP (PSP2), the Xperia Play will have two analogue touch pads, a feature none of the models of the PSP have yet to exhibit.
Also included is a five megapixel camera and a four inch touch sensitive screen. The device runs on Gingerbread (2.3), a version of the Google Android platform. Powering all this is a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with a 1Ghz CPU and embedded Adreno GPU graphics processor. What that means in layman’s terms, according to Sony Ericsson, is that the Xperia Play is capable of providing 60fps, 3D gaming and web browsing with minimal power consumption. Among the confirmed launch titles are FIFA 10 (complete with multiplayer), Need for Speed, Sims 3, Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell. A Guitar Hero game is also slated for release, despite Activision recently announcing that development on the series had been disbanded. The device will also come pre-loaded with original PlayStation title Crash Bandicoot.
