My upgrade is due in March but it seems there are few new phones that are about to come out.

Xperia play (gaming smart phone on andriod)
LG optimus 3D
Dual processor phones

With the xperia play, my concern would be that it only has a 1ghz processor do u think that would be enough for it to be able to support, smoothly, any decent games?

The price dropped, u can actually preorder this at play (if you pardon the pun)

Not really a Playstation phone as Playstation have had nothing to do with it at all. Just another phone with games facility but will have access to exclusive games. Be interesting to see what they are like.

Not entirely true, as there is going to be a version of the PlayStation store, albeit one which forces users to pay for titles that they have already bought on the regular store... grrr!

Aside from that, the main advantage of this phone over others, for gaming, is obviously the controller inputs, which are highly advantageous, over using the touchscreen.

Sony can call it what they like as they own the brand but the people behind Playstation have had no input on the device. It's been made by Ericcson.

I used to buy SE phones all the time but they don't do great phones any more. Their phones specialise in one thing, whether it's gaming, music, photos to the detriment of other functions. Until they stop releasing dozend of average phones every year instead of a few phones that are good at everything I won't be going back. Besides, this is overpriced for what it is and knowing SE will prob be releases with Android 2.1.
