This phone and the ATRIX 4G are the only phones I care about this year so far. Motorola (Europe) on their official YouTube channel are very gracious to respond to my comments. I hated Moto for awhile because of their lack of software. Same with Sony. Both were on top of the world around 2005 before their sudden drop after 2007 during the iPhone phenomenon. But both companies are making a great comeback and coming out swinging in 2011 thanks to Android, the most popular OS right now. ATRIX, XOOM, XPERIA PLAY, AND NGP all look awesome! Good job, Motorola and Sony! We missed you both.
Everybody is talking about 3DS vs NGP right now, but this could quietly be the best selling portable gaming device of the year and the best-selling Android phone ever. Most popular smartphone of the year not named iPhone. SE puts this on multiple carriers in the U.S. and I could see this phone going for $149-199 w/ contract at first. Then a $99 price after two months. This would be more affordable than either 3DS and NGP. Look at YouTube. 1.3 million hits and another 800K in two other videos since the Super Bowl. SONY has two aces up its sleeve for gamers and each device is trying to converge two markets. When other phone manufacturers start copying the form factor of the X Play just to be PlayStation certified and catch up to the NGP's hardware by 2013, 3DS and NGP will be the last of their kind. XPERIA Play and PS Suite is basically promoting more gaming handheld/cell phone hybrids to be made. Gaming is the biggest seller in the App Store and HTC just bought OnLive. It is no longer a two-horse race between Nintendo vs Sony. But Sony is at least creating the better ecosystem and reacting to ever changing portable gaming climate better. LG Optimus 3D will be announced next week at MWC and Kyocera Echo was just announced. Nintendo 3DS won't be as unique once phones start adding glass-free 3D screens and dual screens. By the time XPERIA Play 3 comes out in 2013, we could see it as powerful as NGP and unique as the 3DS. XPERIA Play is just the start. Give it time to build a bigger following. This could be the beginning of the end for all gaming handhelds.
2) Global launch
4) T mobile
this is the priority of operators that this phone is going to be launched

2) European global
These are the operators to get in priority
me, 10 Feb 2011Wow.. i love to have one of this.. i hope i can afford the price.. a treat for myself.. XDA treat indeed. And looks well worth it. I'd get one and it'd be my forever and ever after phone.
If sony can make a phone with a slideout for gaming...dont u think they could make a slide out keyboard??
this seems to be awsome c an create a gaming venture all over,expecting its release soon..........
tegra 2 phones are just big battery users right now...maybe in a year dual core should be justified in a phone cuz this phone plays ALL phone games smoothly and it has gaming buttons that makes it better bcz it doesnt fill the screen with buttons and its more comfortable.doesnt this phone have 512mb of ram?But I would rather use an se arc or an htc than an gamin phone.
Seabass978, 10 Feb 2011Wonder what carrier is gonna get this, maybe all 4 major us carrier would be nice.Verizon is confirmed. Not sure about the others...
cool phone!!! if camera change to 8MP... i'll definitely buy this instead of Xperia Arc... but still Arc is my first choice!!!
