Xperia Play will be a hit. Gamers are a true, unappreciated segment of the smart phone market. Most of the criticisms of this phone seem to revolve around the use of games already available to other devices, but those that love to pass time with games will give this a chance on pure gratitude someone was listening to their needs. Bet it is still a home run. Like the tech stats on LG 3D offering, but 3D is a dig it or you don't market. Not sure how big of an audience it will garner. Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Incredible are both deservedly sure hits. I am pulling for the Pre 3. Never had a chance to really play around with a WebOS device, looking foreword to giving it a shot.

The Xperia Play will probably be a hit, but predominantly in Asia. The unfortunate thing about this gaming phone is that its made by Sony Ericsson - meaning handset quality, OS updates, fixes, warranty & support will be at rock bottom dumb end of the satisfaction scale.

Really, the big question here is with the Galaxy S II. Which markets will get Tegra II CPU, and which markets will get the new Exynos CPU??. Samsung is yet to decide, and while the Exynos is behind in the benchmarks, I'd rather get my hands on the Tegra II handset - especially when Nvidia has been working hard with the gaming developers with Tegra II optimisations. The Tegra II handsets seem to be pulling better benchmarks than the Exynos too, but that could be for a number of reasons (eg LG have used dual channel architecture).

Dear Phonearena.

I read at so many places that the Altek A14 Leo would be at MWC, you know, that phone with Android, 14 Megapixel camera and 3x OPTICAL ZOOM!!

Looks like an amazing smartphone, but I don't know if I can trust an pretty unknown brand. That's why I was looking forward to finding out much more about this phone, but now MWC is ended and I can't find anything about this phone??

Does someone know more please?

Thank you very much!
