Xperia Play (CDMA) | Sony Ericsson
Sony has confirmed that the gaming-focused Xperia Play will not be upgraded to Android 4.0 as a result of concerns with stability and user experience.
Verizon has updated the Sony Xperia Play today with Android 2.3.4 and a few new camera features. You can now use the right trigger as a camera button, and continuous auto-focus is now supported while shooting video.
Box.net has already given iOS users and LG Android phone users 50GB of free cloud storage, and now it's bringing that love to Sony Ericsson Xperia users. All you need to do is download the Box app from the Android market, login from your Xperia, and you'll get your 50GB.
The Xperia Play, Sony Ericsson's gaming-centric Android handset, has been hacked to use the newer PlayStation Store app with PSN integration. Although the exploit was discovered in Japan last month, it is now functional in the UK, suggesting that new games may be reaching the device soon.
Verizon Wireless is offering a variety of discounted smartphones, including a brand-new red HTC Droid Incredible 2. It is also offering the Motorola Xoom 4G for $199.
Minecraft on the Xperia Play is a slightly stripped down experience, due to performance constraints (and I’m guessing UI limitations), so right now it’s a lot more like the creative mode — you have unlimited blocks of whatever type to build with, and you don’t need any fancy tools to destroy stuff.
Sony Ericsson was originally announced as a launch partner for Windows Phone 7, but CEO Bert Nordberg called the OS inferior to Google's Android in a recent interview.
