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!
