Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play was given its first detailed hands-on in the West today. The device features a four inch 854 by 480 screen and 512MB of RAM. Also, as suspected, it’s running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And is powered by single-core Qualcomm MSM8655 SoC with a processor that clocks from 122.88MHz to 1GHz and an Adreno 205 GPU. In one benchmark (NenaMark), the Xperia Play scored similarly to the Tegra 2-powered LG Star. It also carries 512MB of RAM and a 1500mAh battery that gives about a full day of moderately active 3G use. The 5MP camera is limited to 800×480 video recording and is accompanied by LED flash.
