Gadget News: The PlayStation Phone Is Up And Running
Moving on to gadget news, one of the most anticipated products has been the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. or as other people want to call it, the PlayStation phone. it seems like a hybrid between the popular gaming console and a phone. perhaps the bother of the other hybrid, the iPhone which is the hybrid between a iPod and a phone.
The phone has a simple slide-out shape. Now, this is not the time to fall to sleep, since the keyboard has the cool design as a PlayStation controller all with the four-button keypads. The phone is one of the new gadgets around and it comes loaded with 6 free games and the other ones have to be downloaded and purchased.
The phone runs on Verizon’s 3G network and operates on Android using Flash animation. The screen is 4 inches wide. There might be a problem with the phone if it only runs on the 3g network which is a bit antiquated. Good thing it is also Wi-FI enabled which makes it one of the coolest gadgets.
The thing that sets the phone apart from other smart-phones it’s the gaming function. other than that the phone can be used to access Gmail as all the latest gadgets. it has a camera which can be used for video chatting. The problem for most people is that users can only use the phone if they have a contract with Verizon.
The biggest question that comes to my mind now is how long the battery will last. First because a portable game console can’t be too big, so it has a small size battery, and second because playing with a mobile device drains the battery a lot faster than when using it ‘gently’. Actually gaming puts the highest strain on your device, so until Sony releases some official numbers we’re out in the dark about this issue.
