The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play will be powered by a second generation Qualcomm MSM8655 1GHz chip. Loaded with 512MB and 1GHz of ROM, the device is expected to have a 4 inch display. A microSD slot will replace the Memory Stick for expandable storage and the phone will be the first to allow access to the Sony Marketplace where games can be bought for the new Android 2.3 OS, which reminds us that Sony Ericsson customers won't have to wait for an update to have the latest Android software. The XPERIA Play will be loaded with Gingerbread out of the box.
