A Japanese newspaper, Asahi Shimbun, is reporting that the Sony Android Playstation phone which is rumored to be named the Xperia Play, will be released in early Spring 2011. This pretty much just re-enforces the recent information from last week about this device not making an appearance at CES 2011 but at MWC 2011 instead.
Last week reports came out that Sony Ericsson would not be showing the Xperia Play at CES 2011 but instead opting to show it off at the Mobile World Conference 2011 in February. The early Spring 2011 release is for the device to land on North American and European shores.
There is still a lot to learn about this device and recent benchmark tests were fairly unimpressive but as the software/hardware wasn’t final, we can’t take those test results too seriously. Hopefully Sony will drop some more information regarding the final specs of the device as well as game titles ready at release, how they will run and all that good stuff.
Good news is though, the wait is almost over!
