Design Xperia Play
Xperia Play smartphone could be the most serious and bold ever produced by Sony Ericsson. Featuring a 4 inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, Xperia Play has a thickness of 16 millimeters and weighs 175 grams, making it quite inconvenient to carry.

But that does not mean the physical form is not fun to watch. Like other family Xperia members, Xperia Play has a simple and elegant design.

To operate its gaming features, users simply remove the control that presents a slide-out buttons like the PlayStation consoles, including the shoulder button next to the phone body so close to the volume control buttons.

Users will get interfaces Xperia Play similar to other Xperia family members. The phone has five home screen can be selected as desired, including a widget that displays Timescape update Facebook and Twitter as well as incoming messages. To select one of five existing home screen, users only need to swipe to the left and right.

Users can set game phone to automatically activate the feature by simply shifting the Xperia Play console slide. But if you do not want this application is activated, you just set it back on the phone settings.

Xperia Play has 5 games pre-installed with Crash Bandicoot as the only game on PlayStation Pocket that offers a special PS One games, while games such as FIFA 10, The Sims 3, Star Battalion and Bruce Lee can be accessed at the Xperia Play a game displays of Android Market.

Before you can play one of the 5 games that are available, you must download the game files in question is quite large in size. Make sure you have good data package or connected with wi-fi access is tight so the download process does not last too long or fail in the middle of the road.

Xperia Play console slides feels stable enough to be grasped. In addition, the game buttons on this phone is also convenient to be operated so that the user will have the optimal gaming experience.

Xperia Play include a camera with high resolution, ie 5 megapixels. Indeed, the Arc has not matched that achieved the Xperia camera 8 megapixels, but the resulting image is quite satisfying nonetheless.

The color and sharpness of images from the photo outside the room was very qualified, as it always offered by Sony Ericsson phones other. However, users must perform a number of settings to get the color and sharpness of the same image when it is inside the room. It is obviously quite a hassle for users.

This phone is equipped with multiple connectivity options like a smartphone on the market: Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth and 3G/HSDPA. In addition Xperia Play can also be used as a portable hotspot like Froyo and Gingerbread Android phone in general.

What distinguishes the Xperia Play of cousins Media Server is an application that allows users to access content in mobile phones in the local network, so you can stream video in a larger PC screen simply by doing some of the settings.

Overall, the Xperia Play is actually quite satisfying as a smartphone. But the design is too thick and a few games that feature complex arrangements make the Legal for immediate re-think buying this phone. Legal fairly disappointed that the Xperia Play unable to meet the initial expectations are so high. Especially with the price of Rp 4 million, it would be more satisfying if you increase your budget to buy two sets of smartphones and handheld consoles are different.

Cell phone manufacturers are now continuing to develop the production of smartphones. Not only that, a number of corporate giants in the field of information technology also makes the smartphone market with a passionate rivalry in the developing smartphone operating system support.

In fact, when compared to existing smartphones, the first smartphone arguably made ​​much simpler. Debuting in 1993 at the Wireless World Conference, IBM launched a company BellSouth Cellular Simon as the first smartphone in the world.

As quoted from the pages of Mashable, the first smartphone weight is only about 1 pound or 0.5 pounds. IBM Simon is the forerunner of the PDA-phones that use LCD touchscreen.

The first smartphone is also the first phone that did not have a massage button and use the touch screen with stylus support. In addition, this phone also has an on-screen QWERTY keyboard.

When first launched, IBM Simon was promoted as the phone function is more than just voice. Simon was introduced as a device that uses advanced wireless technology and can function as a pager, email, calendar, date book, address book, calculator, to create an electronic sketch.

Therefore, RIM also makes the tagline: more friends = more music.

But, the services paid U.S. $ 4.9 thousand per month should work hard to earn interest at market streaming music. Because BBM Music users will be limited only to select 50 songs from millions of songs that exist in the catalog RIM.

Mobile music application like Pandora and Spotify has attracted the majority of iPhone users and Android smartphone. However, until now BlackBerry platform untouched by the music application.

"People do not think the BlackBerry as an entertainment platform, but I've heard from various developers of music application, they like to develop a music application for the BlackBerry platform because it does not have many competitors."

But the service is still widely criticized, mainly because of restrictions on 50 songs to choose. "This service is like intended to direct users to invite people at random through the Blackberry Messenger, so they can get more songs," wrote one customer. "But I prefer to consider the social aspects, rather than just a matter of friends to get a song."
Blackberry Messenger Music is expected to be launched later this year.
