Message Text: Sony Ericsson today unveilled the Xperia neo and Xperia pro, two additions to the new generation of Xperia smartphones, as well as the Xperia PLAY.

The Gingerbread-based Xperia pro combines an optimized slide-out keyboard with smart functions. Featuring an ergonomically crafted keyboard, Sony Ericsson has focused on integrating the hardware with clever messaging functions. Xperia pro introduces the fast Type & Send functionality eliminating the need to open a dedicated app for each type of message, and Smart Keyboard that triggers predictive messaging actions automatically when the user slides out the keyboard.

Xperia pro is also coming with a set of professional functions such as syncing your email, calendar and contacts in a secure way and the pre-loaded Office Suite Pro lets consumers view and edit office documents directly on the phone.

Both Xperia pro and Xperia neo smartphones feature the Mobile BRAVIA Engine. Sony's Exmor R for mobile sensor enables the capture of high quality pictures and HD videos even in low light. All pictures and videos can be shared on an HD TV in your living room via the built in HDMI-connector.

Both smartphones will launch on the latest version of the Android platform providing access to Google Mobile Services and applications available via the Android market.

Xperia PLAY

Sony Ericsson today also officially announced the Xperia PLAY, the latest phone in its Xperia range of Android based smartphones. The so-called "PlayStation phone" is coming to Verizon Wireless in April, the CEO of phone maker Sony Ericsson said Sunday.

In portrait mode, the Android smartphone offers all the benefits that users have come to expect from Sony Ericsson's existing range of Xperia smartphones with a 5 megapixel camera, a 4" multi-touch screen and great social networking features.

However, slide out the gaming control and users enter a new world of mobile gaming. The slide out game pad reveals a digital D pad, two analogue touch pads, two shoulder buttons and the four PlayStation icons: circle, cross, square and triangle. Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor with a 1Ghz CPU and embedded Adreno GPU graphics processor deliver 60fps play-back 3D mobile gaming and Web browsing.

XperiaTM PLAY will run on Gingerbread (version 2.3), the latest version of Google?s Android platform. The XperiaTM PLAY will also be the first PlayStation Certified device. This means it will have access to PlayStation game content provided through the PlayStation Suite initiative, currently under development by Sony Computer Entertainment and due to launch later this calendar year.

Sony Ericsson has partnered with key publishers in the gaming industry to deliver an ecosystem at launch and post launch with many new titles available via the Android Marketplace. Franchises coming to Xperia PLAY includes EA's Need For Speed, Sims 3 and a world-first multiplayer version of FIFA 10 for mobile. GLU Mobile/Activision will be bringing Guitar Hero while Gameloft's titles include Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. Sony Ericsson is also partnering with Unity Technologies, using its development platform, to ensure a continuous flow of 3D game titles.

A pre-loaded application will also enable users to discover and download titles that have been optimised for game play on Xperia PLAY, access recently played games and see information about the games they have downloaded.
