The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is cutting-edge games console and a high-end Android smartphone all in one. With dedicated gaming controls, oodles of great games and apps, plus the latest, greatest version of Android, this really, really has got the lot.
Mobile gaming has taken a massive step forward with the Play, AKA the PlayStation phone. And that's because it offers console quality, sophisticated PSP and PlayStation games that offer an immersive gaming experience far removed from most other games created for mobile phones. What's more, you'll get a massive range to choose from too.
Just head to the PlayStation Suite and you'll be able to select from masses of great titles. And better still, you can download them straight to your handset wherever you are, so you'll never be short of something new to play - whether your thing is vintage titles from gaming past or up to the minute gaming experiences.
And if you were in any doubt about this handset's gaming credentials, take a look at the dedicated d-pad and physical buttons, which give you much higher levels of control than you get with touchscreen-operated games. It's everything the PSP is. And more.
But don't think the Play is just about gaming. Not a bit of it. As a fully functional Android phone you also get hundreds of thousands of Android apps to pick from. To get you started, there's even some great Google applications pre-installed, including FaceBook, YouTube and Google Maps.
Other key features of the Play include a five megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording, a web browser and media player, a gloriously colourful, pin-sharp four-inch Bravia touchscreen, support for 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and a powerful 1Ghz processor to keep everything ticking over smoothly.
