Xperia Play previewed

Whoopsie. You know that Sony Ericsson Xperia Play/Playstation Phone/PSP Phone thingy everyone's expecting to see at Mobile World Congress in a few weeks? Well, there it is, in the hot little hands of Engadget for a full preview treatment.

The long and short of it is it looks like a (pretty sexy) Xperia device, with Playstation-type controls tucked into a horizontal slider. No great surprise there. The screen reportedly is pretty impressive, though Timescape running on a 1GHz processor was not. (Again, no great surprise there.)

Details also are light on how gaming will come into play, so we have that to look forward to on Feb. 13. Check out the preview video after the break, and hit up the source for the whole shebang. [Engadget]

Not sure if I would get it or not...I think I'd play with it at a looks like it might be interesting, though...

Finally, a real "gaming" phone. This sure beats the hell out of the old n-gage.

I read it more as the UI was underwhelming for the processor used.
