It has a 4-inch FWVGA display with a 480 x 854 resolution, 5.1 megapixel camera, 8GB microSD memory card, with 400MB of internal memory.

Powered by a 1 GHz Scorpion ARMv7 processor, the Xperia Play will run Google’s Gingerbread Android operating system, weighing 175 grams and will come in either black or white.

The device will be not ship with the PlayStation Suite, we expected that way back when Sony announced it would be available by the end of the year. Instead, Sony Ericsson will preload the device with one PlayStation One title – problem is, we don’t know what this is.

Twenty game publishers have partnered with Sony Ericsson to launch games specifically for the Xperia Play, including Gameloft, Electronic Arts and Blue Mobile.
