Sony Ericsson rebounded frorn a run of mediocre releases at MWC with a fine trio of Android Gingerbread phones spearheaded by the Xperia Play, This features PSP Go-style, slide-out game controls and PlayStation Suite, which allows you to connect to the PlayStation Network and download games.Thefour-inchscreen,1GHz Snapdragon processor and Adreno GPU offer very respectable graphical chops,with Sony Ericsson claiming games will run at 60fps, What, all garnes? Elsewhere, the Xperia Pro takes on BlackBerry while the Neo boasts a cracking, eight-meg camera with Sony Exmor sensor.
Theres a lot to love about tne Xperia play. It's a chunky phone, but understandabIy so, as it has to accommodate not just a4-inch,480 x 854 screen, but aIso a sIide-our gamepad, and a battery that can fight through severaI hours of non-stop game time - five and a haIfhours, to be exact. The gamepad itself sIides our with very reassuring soIidity, and for the most part is brilliant. The tactile response is fantastic and nothing seems easily breakable
play is powerful enough to run those games-rest assured,it is has a lGHz processor with 380MB RAM, and we haven't found a game that lagged yet. We did, howcver, find that games had a tendency to crash some times, but the version of the software on our review device is not the final rectail version to be relcased in June, so hopefully some bugs just need ironing out.
