Is it an Android phone? Is it a PSP Go? Is it going to be any more successful than the previous attempts to blur the lines between handheld gaming and smartphone? Who cares, it looks awesome! It’s the Sony Xperia Play, and pre-orders for Verizon Wireless will begin on the 19th, and in stores on the 26th!Sony’s marketing behind this device has been a confusing at best. Rather then call it the PSP Phone, a name which would undoubtedly bring Sony fans rushing into stores to buy one, it gets branded as the Xperia Play, an addition to the less then amazingly successful line of Android phones bade by Sony. On top of that, Sony’s own commercials have repeatedly mentioned playing games on cellphones in an attempt to smear the iPhone, so one would think it would be beneficial to make sure the phone possesses the PSP brand, right?AdChoices广告Regardless of your opinion of their marketing, the phone is coming stuffed with games, including including Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, and Tetris. Additionally, there will be over 50 games made available via the V CAST APPS store, and titles on the way through Sony’s PlayStstion Store.For day to day phone interaction, this Android 2.3 powered smartphone’s VGA Front Facing Camera and 5MP rear camera put it alongside most midrange smartphones. The 1500maH battery doesn’t inspire confidence that you’ll be playing Crash Bandicoot all day long, but on the other hand Android 2.3 does have some clever battery sipping code within, so who knows.
