is it enough memory for updating OS (i mean android ICS or any other) ?
Also for this who just want a portable media player/gaming device without needing phone functionality, I recommend getting the Verizon R800x. You can get refurbished ones for extremely cheap on ebay, under one hundred quid. With all the features it offer its well worth it. Along with the gamepad, it has a decent camera and 720p recording, great sound quality and stereo speakers, the CDMA version have GPS without needing to be activated so you can use offline maps.
IMPORTANT: I owned all three version of the Play. I can confirm that the R800i only support the 900/2100 bands therefore it will not work with any 3G in USA. You will need to get the R800at, which if you unlock it will also get 3G on T-Mobile in selected 1900MHz coverage area. Also the R800at bootloader is not officially unlockable by Sony, which mean you won't be able to install custom roms. (There are unofficial method, but its hard to get in contact with the only 2 people who can do it.)

hi............ i lik diz fone aft i read diz commentz i love diz fone ..........
I found the camera sensor of this device to be very acceptable, its almost as detailed as my Galaxy Nexus and work better under low light too, making it more practical. It just doesn't have touch focus, so you have to hold the shoot button to focus. The video recording have continuous autofocus.
Also it has great GPS/GLONASS signal and excellent sound quality. Would have been a perfect device if the CPU/GPU performance wasn't so crappy by today standard.
