Sony Xperia Play to launch this Sunday (13th Feb)

The team from Sony is making an offical announcement soon about the Xperia Play an Android based Portable Gaming unit and a phone rolled into one. This phone was earlier nicknamed the “Playstation phone” , and  they’ll be unveiling it at the Mobile World Congress.

They’ve also got a Facebook page running with a teaser image of the phone and the date and time of the official announcement, which is the 13th of February at 6pm GMT. For us folks in India, that’s going to be around 11:30pm. Are you excited enough to stay up for the launch?

The Xperia Play’s going to be an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) device with slide-out gamepad controller. I’m really curious about what games are going to be exclusively available for the phone which are optimized for the gamepad controllers. There’ s no news yet on what the device is going to cost and when it’ll be available on sale. So stay tuned for news about this as we get more details.

Here’s a somewhat creepy trailer for the Xperia Play:
