Rikko Sakaguchi, the executive vice president and chief creation officer stated “living up to our vision of communication entertainment Xperia Play will forever change the way people think about smartphone and mobile gaming” and we agree to the statement.
The phone uses Android 2.3 and gives gamers and newbie a whole new entertainment. Unlike any other smartphone where you need to move it left or right or maybe push the virtual button on the screen, this smarthphone has a real pad. Direction pad and 4 action button and two side button of Left and Right as well as start, select and home. This way it can ease gamer when they play first person shooter game.
All the buttons of this communication device are hidden underneath the form factor slide out. It’s also quite amazing how Xperia Play kept its thickness at about 16mm. The decision to use Snapdragon MSM8255 1GHz is a bit disappointing as many Android smartphones this year already started to the dual core with clock that runs as fast as 1.2 GHz.
