Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play unboxing video

Play-Angled Rumours of a Playstation phone have been circulating for months so it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Sony Ericsson officially announced the XPERIA Play last month at MWC.

The Android-powered Play has a large capacitive touchscreen display which, at 4″, is going to be great for both gaming and video play back. There’s also a 1GHz Snapdragon to keep the game play fluid.

Of course the real trick up the sleeve is the sliding screen. Whereas on other handsets you might expect to see a hardware QWERTY keyboard under the display, the XPERIA Play as a Playstation-style control pad complete with two analogue controls.

In the video below you can see my unbox the play before taking a tour around a few bits of the OS and UI and then having a stab at a couple of the pre-installed Playstation games. I think we are the first to have our hands on a fully boxed XPERIA Play too!

Sony Ericsson X10 to get Gingerbread

sony_ericsson_xpera_10On the Sony Ericsson blog Rikard Skogberg has announced he work on a planned upgrade for the Xperia X10 to Android 2.2.3, Gingerbread. Great news, as last we spoke to Sony Ericsson about the X10 there was no comments, I guess they must have been thinking about it and could say for definite, No. The downside is that Rikard also outlines that there will be no upgrade plans for the X10 Mini, Mini Pro or X8. Bit of a shame. obviously they have been working on 2.3.3 for the new line of phones and realised they could retro-fit the X10. Nice to see. Check after the break for the whole blog entry from Rikard:
