Android mascot gets operation to play with new Sony Ericsson smartphone
Anyone who has ever played with a PlayStation game controller knows that it requires opposable thumbs to handle the controls. With this in mind, our little green friend-who has been the long time mascot of Google's open source operating system-would have to give up ever having a chance to slide out the game controls and give the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play a turn unless something could be done to add a pair of opposable thumbs to our robotic pal.

This is the theme of a new commercial by Sony Ericsson and while a little disturbing at times, it provides the joint venture with a bit of an edge that they have lacked in the past. Hopefully this all means that an introduction of the device is on the way with a launch to follow not too long after that. After all, no one likes to be sitting by, twiddling their thumbs.

Thanks Michael!
