Exactly tomorrow, Verizon Wireless will begin accepting pre-orders for the super fun Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play smartphone, or what we have known as the PlayStation Phone from the start. Verizon officially announced that the pre-orders open on May 19th, and the Android phone itself will go on sale starting on May 26th.
As the matter of the pricing, Verizon is lowering down the price to $199.99, but you are going to sign up with their 2-year contract before you can take home the XPERIA Play. We’ll it’s probably a problem if you’ve had too much cell phone contract you have in your hand.
Anyway, to refresh what Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play all about, it’s an Android phone that Sony has stamped their “PlayStation certified” on. It’s also one of the hybrid Android PSP phone in the market that no other phone has such a great gaming feature yet.
As the matter of performance, XPERIA Play is coming with 1GHz Qualcomm processor, Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB RAM, and a 4-inch multi-touch display that support up to 480 x 854 pixels resolution.
So, would you want to pre-order one if you have already got an Android Phone? I’m PSP fans, so I would!
