In portrait-mode, the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY offers all the benefits that consumers have come to expect from an Android-powered smartphone operating on the nation’s largest 3G-network. The device is equipped with a speedy 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, runs on Android 2.3, has a 5-megapixel camera in the back and a VGA front-facing camera perfect for video chat, a brilliant 4-inch 854 x 480 multi-touch screen display, and Wi-Fi, along with best-in-class entertainment experiences, great social networking features and access to over 150,000 Google apps from the Android Market.
However, when the Xperia PLAY slides open, it becomes the ultimate mobile gaming device. The slide out game pad reveals a full range PlayStation gaming control including a digital D pad, two analogue touch pads, two shoulder buttons and the four PlayStation icons: circle, cross, square and triangle. Further enhancing the gaming experience, the Xperia PLAY provides incredible 3D graphics, superb stereo sound and support for multi-player gaming.
