The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play scores a video review
From the first time we saw the prototype of the landscape oriented sliding PlayStation controller, we could tell that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play was going to be a unique handset that could become a hot item for video game devotees. And not only is the phone well suited for game play, it also features some nice high-end specs.

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.

Check out the latest video review of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play from a Taiwanese web site. Grab your English-Chinese dictionary. For serious game players,a tough decision will have to be made between this handset and some of the dual-core speed that is also heading to carriers soon. As we reported, the device is expected to launch in March with additional details coming at the MWC next month in Barcelona.

Speaking of the MWC, we will be there bringing you hands-on reports about you favorite handsets and tablets, and perhaps we will be able to get our hands on (pun intended) the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play.
