Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Receives Its Full Breakdown
Although we don't yet have the official press release in our inboxes, it seems the PlayStation Phone - which will be known as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play - has been fully revealed.
Featuring a 4-inch multitouch 854 x 480 LCD screen, it's similar to other Xperia phones, as you will see by reading the huge preview over at Engadget. Previous rumors have been confirmed as well: it'll be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8655 chipset, there will be a single-core processor inside that clocks from 122.88MHz to 1GHz, and it's helped along with an Adreno 205 GPU. Combined with Gingerbread and 512MB of RAM, the unit appears to be quite capable. There's a ton more information so feel free to dive in; they talk about the button setup, structural explanation, and a few complaints, including the fact that they couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work, and the glossy batter door is "very flimsy." All we need now is a price and a date and of course, those are quite possibly the two most important details, as far as most consumers are concerned. After reading that big ol' breakdown, though, you'll probably make a decision...are you interested?
Although we don't really cover phones, this may fall under the "PlayStation" heading, so we'll see if we can hit up Sony for one of these bad boys. If we do, we'll tell you all about it.
