Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – the best of both worlds?February 25, 2011 # 7:57 am # Uncategorized # No Comment
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is the first smartphone/game console hybrid, and it seems that it offers the best of both worlds. In terms of an Android smartphone there seems to be little on the market to best it and in terms of a games console, equipped with PlayStation buttons and touchpad joysticks, that doubles as a smartphone; it is unique.
If you are intending to buy this little machine, and if you are you will have to wait until late March as it doesn’t appear in UK stores until March 28, then the only reason to do so is if you are serious about playing games on your smartphone, and if you really are serious about playing games on your smartphone then buying the Xperia Play is a no-brainer, as there is nothing anything like it on the market.
Some of the physical features like the display screen functions exactly as an ordinary capacitive smartphone touchscreen and is four inches across with superb resolution and 854 by 480 pixels. As a smartphone it behaves more or less exactly like the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 except that it has a more up to date version of the Android operating system. If you are not into gaming, then the X10 could be the phone for you.
Of course you need to consider whether Android is your favourite operating system. Symbian is dreadfully out of date and the Apple OS does not support Adobe Flash. With the Xperia Play you also get the latest version of Android.
But the true grit of the Xperia Play is as a gaming machine. It has impressive 3D 60 fps true HD graphics which are really immersive and you can play all those wonderful classic PlayStation games. Of course you are not restricted to the Playstation classics; many new games will surely appear before too long and 50 of them are promised by the UK launch date.
We really do think that with this phone you do get the best of both worlds. Read more about this handset online at Dial-a-phone.
