Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is part smartphone, part gaming console, and is unlike any other current device. When closed, it looks like a regular – if slightly large – smartphone. Slide the lower half down however, and you'll find a proper set of gaming controls, which are all the better for taking full advantage of the powerful graphics card.
Summary: One of the questions I presented to you guys when I wrote the piece about playing games was if you should buy this phone, even if you aren't a gamer. The answer is yes. The Play is really a great Android device, no matter how you look at it. It runs stock Gingerbread and is fast in most things. There are a few quirks, of course; there isn't a device without them.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (also known as the “PlayStation Phone”) is, in my opinion, an excellent phone. I was a little anxious about being selected to review it before it was sent to us because I had been hearing some negative feedback about it. The main thing that I was most concerned with was the fact that there are those that claim to have trouble with one of the key things that distinguish the device: the touchpad analog controls.
Summary: The long awaited “PlayStation Phone” has arrived. Although, it carriers a different name — Xperia Play. Nonetheless, this phone completes several years worth of dreams from gamers and nerds alike all over the world. The basic ingredients include a speedy processor, slide-out gaming controls, and Google’s latest Gingerbread OS. It certainly sounds like a recipe for success.
