The mythical Sony PlayStation Phone has now become a reality as the company prepares to launch this bad boy in March, 2011. This cool gaming phone is called Xperia Play and it will run on Android Gingerbread O.S. The Sony PlayStation gaming console is one of the most iconic gaming platforms in the world. Over the years they have presented the gamers of the world with millions of hours of pure fun and bliss. It has revolutionized video games like no other company. Now Sony is back ready to rock the mobile phone industry.
The Playstation phone looks quite similar to a PSP Go in its core design. The phone might not have the most cutting edge design out of all the gaming phones but at the same time it is no ugly device either. The design is quite simplistic in nature but maybe the bland exterior will be to mask the beast inside. It comes with a black and silver theme where the body has a nice glossy black color whereas the gaming pad has a silvery appearance. A white option is also available. The gaming phone will also sport a gorgeous 4-inch Bravia touch screen with a resolution of 854×480 pixels. The phone will also have a slide out gaming pad containing the iconic Playstation control buttons.
Over the past few months, a lot of speculation had passes regarding a possible Playstation phone in the making. All that speculation has now been confirmed to be true as the world anticipates the launch of this great device this March. The gaming phone also comes with two cameras, a slide out Playstation controls, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor with MicroSD card support. The MicroSD card will allow users to store up to 32 GB of game information. The camera is said to be a 5 megapixel one and the device is said to sport 512 MB RAM and 1GB of ROM. It even has a multitouch touchpad in the middle of the gaming control pad.
Along with the Playstation phone, Sony has also expressed an interest in becoming a major player in the Android market. Therefore one would be safe to assume that some kick ass games will follow. Many franchises have already partnered with Sony to bring the best games to the Xperia Play. On one hand you have a decent phone, on the other you have a gaming beast waiting to unleash its fury. All you have to do is slide the gaming pad out and let the Playstation phone do what it does best.
