Sony Ericsson Xperia Play unboxing

IMG_1131

Sony Ericsson has definitely been ramping up its game recently. Although a few of its "announcements" have proven to be totally false, at least the company has committed to it and is getting better at releasing its devices, too.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has been out for a little while now, but it's still one of the most intriguing devices to come from the manufacturer. As a proud owner of a PSP, I must say that this device really hits my sweet spot, so I just had to give it a look. Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1GHz second-gen Snapdragon and 512MB of RAM, the Play certainly has the specs to play some hardcore games. You can view those games on a relatively small 4-inch display that comes in at a resolution of 480 x 854. 

With the specs out of the way, how about we unbox this bad boy?

In opening the box, I found the device sitting on top of a layer of cardboard, meant to separate it from the goodies down below.

Those goodies, you may have guessed, are a microUSB to USB cable, a wall adapter, and the numerous (useless) booklets that companies love to put in. However, there's also one very odd cable included: a 3.5mm headset jack converter . . . that converts to another 3.5mm headset jack. Specifically, "For use with non-Sony Ericsson headset." Hmm.

Here's everything in box (minus the stupid booklets.) The bottom wire is that aforementioned ridiculous adapter. 

So I will definitely be following up with game reviews and maybe even a comparison with this and my older PSP. If there is anything you'd like to see, please leave a comment with what that thing is. 

Do you own a Xperia Play? Do you want one?
