Sony makes Xperia Play official, to unveil on Feb 13 - nairrk - 02-07-2011

Bangalore: A month back, we had reported of the Xperia Play phone and emergence of its specifications in a Chinese website. Today the news remains the same but this time the confirmation comes from the horse's mouth. Yes, Sony has officially acknowledged the Xperia Play phone, also dubbed as the PlayStation phone or Zeus Z1 and informed that it will launch the phone on February 13 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), Barcelona.

While the specifications will be detailed at Sony's event in MWC, what is confirmed is that the Xperia Play will definitely run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Much of the phone's specs that we reported earlier remain the same like a 4 inch display screen with 854 X 480 resolution. It will have a slide out a la PSP with controls including optical analog 'sticks' and two shoulder buttons. The Xperia Play will have a 5MP camera and be powered by Qualcomm's 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Sony is doing its round of promotions for the phone and has put a countdown timer on its Facebook fan page to the date of its unveiling. The company also advertised the phone during the second quarter of the Super Bowl through a TVC. The TVC does not reveal much except that it says the Xperia Play is "the smartphone with everything you need and the one thing you want".

We have marked our calendar and will bring you the latest details and full specs of the Xperia Play once it is out. Watch this space for more.
