Shopping for a Sony fan, or perhaps a gamer who doesn't care to be wedded to the House of Apple? The Xperia PLAY 4G is the new Andriod smartphone from Sony. It features a pull-out tray with a D-pad, analog controls, shoulder buttons, and the Sony face buttons, allowing gamers to choose between touchscreen or traditional controls for games.
Of course, the Xperia PLAY 4G is also a smartphone, and comes with plenty of related goodies such as Google voice search, YouTube integration, and a gesture input function for text messaging. It's keeping up with the times, too, as Sony has announced that the device will be getting an upgrade to the new Android version, Ice Cream Sandwich.
