in Hands On, Xperia PLAY

Xperia PlayFollowing on from Engadget’s extensive preview of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (Playstation Phone), TechRadar managed to spend a few hours with the handset and posted their first thoughts. They found the Xperia Play to be a “chunky beast”, although it did fit well in the hand. Niggles included the placement of the power button (hidden by the slide-out keyboard) and 3.5mm jack (on the side of the phone).

On the plus side they believe the 4-inch display will use the same Bravia Engine found in the Xperia arc. They couldn’t test out any games as the Playstation Suite portal is not live yet. However, despite this they weren’t sold on the button placement, saying that it was difficult to rest your forefingers on the shoulder buttons comfortably. They also weren’t able to test call quality and the internet, but the handset is believed to have dual mics for noise-cancellation purposes (much like the arc). Look for the official announcement of the device in less than a couple of weeks at MWC Barcelona.
