The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY phone comes into view (“The PlayStation Phone”)

Long rumoured, it’s nice to finally get a bit of a look at the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. The advertisement for the phone hit Youtube moments ago and I’m pretty sure it’s going to get a lot of attention.

What you see above is an Android handset that is ‘PlayStation Certified’ — along with the uber-familiar PlayStation controls that slide out there. Nice.

I don’t have anything for you beyond the clip above (that I took from the video) and the Youtube video below. That said, I’d expect the handset to sport some pretty advanced specifications.

The full details for the device will hit the internet at 6pm on the day before Mobile World Congress (13th February). I tell you this thanks to the announcement published recently on the Sony Ericsson Facebook page.

In the meantime, have a look at the nicely produced (and slightly creepy) ad. Android is indeed ready to play.

Also — I wonder how many other Android devices will be ‘PlayStation Certified’? Obviously I imagine Sony Ericsson should get first (and only?) dibs in that regard, but the logo to the top right here does put one in mind of other manufacturers being able to certify certain models for PlayStation status. Who knows? We shall see.
