It's a Playstation and a phone! Aaron checks out the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, an Android device and game system in one. It packs a 1 GHz Scorpion processor, 4-inch LCD display, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), 5-megapixel camera, and a Playstation-like controller.

It'll launch with about 50 available game titles, and Sony Ericsson said they would probably launch the device with a few pre-installed games. The XPERIA Play will be available globally in March, with a Verizon Wireless launch slated for "the spring."

Jamille Browne
Jamille Browne Nope because its Sony and on Verizon Sony sucks with android updates. Sony sucks in regards to how they treat the PS3. Verizon is always overpriced. I hate CDMA. I love GSM. I'm on t-mobile the best American GSM carrier and carrier all round. AT&T nor sprint or verizon can hold a candle to t-mo.

Derrick Simmons
Derrick Simmons I like the concept and it will most likely make a good travel time waster and waiting more bareable. Go luck with keeping phone alive for when you really need it.
