    Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play more a play station than a phone

     

    Many of us are used to playing games in our smart phones using leisure hours. Even if it is fun to play games in a smart phone there will be certain drawbacks when it comes to navigation and control. Some of the hardcore gamers won’t get enough punch to satisfy their cravings using an ordinary smart phone. That is where Sony Ericsson Xperia Play comes into spotlight.

    This gadget is more than just a smart phone and can be considered as a Playstation wrapped up in a mobile phone form factor. In the first look it may pass for an ordinary phone but once you slide the display, it would reveal a full game pad beneath it.
