Xperia Play (PSP Phone) will be the rival of Nintendo 3DS, and not the PSP2 (Sony NGP)

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be the competitor of the Nintendo 3DS for 2011, and not the PSP2.
Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play (or Playstation Phone) will be the competitor of the Nintendo 3DS for this year, based on the reports about the product's release date (Photo:
Sony will be launching two light devices this year, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (or the PSP Phone) and the Sony NGP, which is also popularly known as the PSP2, or the second-generation of the popular Playstation Portable brand. The big difference of the two will be the operating system, and some difference in the technical specifications. You can check out the unofficial specification comparison of the PSP2 and the PSP Phone inAndroid Community.
Unlike the Sony NGP, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is a phone, and will be using Android 2.3 Gingerbread as pre-installed operating system, which means, users can also play games available for Android smartphones, aside from the Playstation emulators.
Engadget was one of the first websites to preview the capabilities of the Xperia Play when it comes to larger games in terms of file size. According to EngadgetSony Ericsson Xperia Play or the Playstation Phone successfully delivered smooth gaming experience.
The site noted: “The handful of games we tried — Ridge Racer Revolution, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4, Gundam Battle Assault 2, and Super Mario Bros. 4 — all ran pretty well.”
Both Xperia Play and Sony NGP have no release dates yet, but Xperia Play is expected to come earlier than the PSP2. According to rumors, Sony is eyeing the second quarter of this year for Xperia Play, while the Sony NGP or the PSP 2 will be launched in “at least one territory by the end of holiday 2011,” says a report fromIndependent. It means, the PSP2 will not be arriving in the USA in the first three quarters of 2011.
It is highly possible that Xperia Play will be Sony’s device to compete with Nintendo 3DS, which is expected to arrive in the US in March. But unlike the Xperia Play,Nintendo 3DS will not support voice calls and text messaging, but rumored to be using 3G connectivity too to get access to the internet aside from WiFi. Also, Nintendo 3DS supports three dimensional display of games, both new and classic.
Speaking of classical games, Nintendo 3DS’ eShop, or the online store where customers can buy software will not become available after launch. Instead, Nintendo said the online shop for the 3DS will be arriving some time in May of this year.

According to IT168, the PlayStation Phone runs Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 paired with the Adreno 205 GPU; there’s a 4-inch display running at 854 x 480, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, 512MB of RAM/ROM and a microSD card slot.
There’s also microUSB and dual microphones for noise cancellation, while the battery is a 1,500mAh unit. An app called PlayStation Pocket is loaded, which seems to be the gaming download store.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is set to be the phone that will be changing the fortunes of Sony Ericsson, which has not been so successful with its other high end smartphone models lately. Part of the reason has been attributed to the lack of good screen phones from Sony Ericsson in a time when touch screen phones have ruled the roost in the market. The touch screen phones that Sony Ericsson have occasionally launched did not have great features to be appealing to a lot of people. However, the story changes entirely when you fast forward to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc. This is the latest phone that incorporates almost all technologies that Sony is known for over the years.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc does not have a totally different style from the Sony Ericsson Xperia range of phones and this is a good thing because if Sony Ericsson is known for something, then it is styling more than anything else. The highlight of the phone is the 8.7 mm thickness that it is having. It makes it one of the thinnest phones available in the market today. More than it, the presence of a 4.2 inch touch screen display makes for astonishing reading. This touch screen display employs the Bravia technology that has been synonymous with extremely high quality display in Sony's LCD range. Sony Ericsson has adopted a number of steps in order to protect the display and usage of a scratch resistant surface is just one of it.

The phone will be having the Timescape user interface for better understanding of the Android operating system. The previous Sony Ericsson Xperia models came with the Android 1.6 operating systems. Predictably, they were massive failures as other manufacturers came up with the latest version of Android. Sony Ericsson does not seem to have made the same mistake twice after it has included the Android 2.2 operating system in the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc. Even though it has been recently replaced by the 2.3 version, it is still good enough to be considered as a proper operating system for this high-end phone. The news gets better when you know that Sony Ericsson is providing update to the Android once you get your hands on the phone. Buyers can upgrade to the 2.3 version as soon as they get their phones.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc comes with the legendary Cybershot quality in its camera and it is an eight megapixel one. This camera comes with plenty of other options to make the photography a joy more than anything else. The phone uses a 1 GHz processor. It also employs the help of a separate graphics card to have better performance when it comes to playing HD games on the phone. The phone has just been launched by the company amidst plenty of other phones from manufacturers. However, it is one phone that has got to the attention of most. It will probably remain the same if Sony Ericsson manages to price it aggressively in the UK.
