The development of PlayStation branded smartphone from Sony Ericsson has been one of the worst kept secrets in the biz, with photos of prototypes and dropped hints from executives going back months now. However, accompanying a 30 second spot during yesterday's Superbowl football match, the company have now officially confirmed it's existence, kicking off a new-media oriented promo on Facebook
and revealing the name "Sony Ericsson Experia PLAY".
According to the Facebook page, the actual official reveal has been scheduled for Monday 14th February 05:00 AEDT (Sydney time) when they will presumably reveal the system specs and the like, no-doubt confirming everything else we already knew
about the device.
The most significant feature of course is the slide panel that bears the familiar PlayStation controller face buttons, aiming to introduce a wider range of input options to games designed for the Android OS that will drive the Experia PLAY.
