Sony Ericsson Xperia Play: PSP with phone

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is the PSP-phone version we all were waiting for ever since I laid my hands on the first PSP in 2006.

When I bought the PSP, I was amazed with its graphics and the game speeds. Games like Burnout were total fun and with capabilities to play audio or video files on the PSP made it an integral component of my life. But, I did wonder how cool it’d be if PSP had a mobile calling option as well.

After years of waiting, and speculations across the internet, Sony Ericsson finally released Xperia Play mobile sets. The phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and has a 1Ghz Qualcomm MSM8655 CPU. It comes with a built in 1-GHz Adreno 205 graphics processor that can give you a 60 fps on some games. There’s a D-pad with PlayStation-like buttons and two touchpads. There’s even the two shoulder buttons, neatly placed right behind the screen. The phone has a wide 4 inch capacitive display with a rez of 854×480 and also comes with a 5MP camera.

The phone will be able to play all Android bsed games with an added advantage of playing PlayStation 1 games on it. The PS1 games will be made available for the Xperia Play through Android Market place.

The only thing I am skeptical about on the success of the Xperia Play mobile is its pricing. Sony Ericsson has apparently priced it at Rs. 35,000 in India. If you snoop around, you can still get the phone for Rs. 30,000, but even that amount seems to be on the higher side. HTC placed its top of the line HTC Desire HD at around Rs. 28000, which comes with a 4.3 inch screen and 8 MP camera. Even Sony’s Samsung Galaxy S with that beautiful Super AmoLED screen comes arund Rs. 27000. So, for Rs. 30,000, Sony Ericccson has definitely failed to out a competitive price on the mobile, especially for the Indian market.
