Big Red announced today that the highly anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY would begin to go on sale starting on May 26th for the usual on-contract price of $199.99. Moreover, if you’re serious about picking one up, you can even place a pre-order starting on May 19th, which is only a mere two days away. Gaming fanatics will be especially ecstatic about this one since it’s your usual high-end smartphone, but it’s geared mostly towards gamers with its slide out gaming pad. Not only that, but the Gingerbread flavored handset will be preloaded with seven game titles – plus, it’ll be supplemented by the vast collection of titles available via V CAST Apps.
Some of its other features include a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon II processor with Adreno 205 GPU, 4” capacitive touchscreen, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing camera, and mobile hotspot functionality.
With a little bit over a week before this all becomes a reality, there’s no arguing that the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY will no doubt attract gamers from all corners with its all-in-one capacity.
