    We've heard of the mysterious, still-totally-unofficial PlayStation Phone running Android 2.2 in the past, but we'd also heard it could run 3.0 -- thing is, that was back before we knew Gingerbread would be 2.3, so it's possible that those 3.0 rumors ended up materializing as 2.3. Capiche? Anyhow, this is the first time we're seeing the Xperia Play (or Zeus Z1, or whatever it'll end up being called) running 2.3 in the wild, doing its thing next to a white Xperia X10 to give you an idea of scale. The lucky poster actually has two of the phones available, so they seem to be leaking out of factories in sufficient quantities now to suggest that it'll likely be announced soon -- or so we hope, anyway. CES? MWC? We'll know soon enough. Follow the break for the 2.3 evidence up close.

    Also notable: these appear to be new hardware builds that feature refined touch surfaces -- notice the engraved circles -- along with PlayStation-themed and Xperia logos at the bottom (notice the telltale square, triangle, X, and circle shapes). The screen shots call out a model number of R800i, which has previously been associated with the Zeus... so this is definitely lining up nicely.

    I like that idea, gaming phone! Cuz its more easier to hack phone, than new console xD Android killed Symbian! That's fact!
    iPhone graphics look superior that this phone's graphic, but he doesn't have keypads. I wan't to touch buttons, not screen!

    Define "beat".

    The amount of user with Android vs amount of user with iOS?
    The market share of Android vs iOS?

    Cause to either, as of January Android is beating iOS in both.


    Anyways I was thinking of dropping my Galaxy S for one of these boys, but they just look to bulky :/
    Might just get an S2 instead.

    ALL PSN item you buy now
    on the psp/ps3/media go

    WILL NOT WORK on this phone
    you WILL NEED TO RE-BUY the items

    PlayStation Network content must be re-purchased on Xperia Play

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    I wouldn't. Despite the dual-core it's not that much faster than the Galaxy S. Wait for the second round of dual-core devices.

    Anyway, having to re-buy PSN content for the Xperia Play is extremely shit. I wasn't going to buy one in the first place, but now even more so

    Android will beat iOS in gaming, adding gamepad is great thing I dont wan't to touch screen, cuz then I can't see a half of screen and that sucks! Touchscreen is not for playing adventure games and shooters, just for strategy games. That's my theory
