Sony Ericsson Xperia Play now available

After months of hype, speculation and anticipation, Sony Ericssons PlayStation phone, the Xperia Play, is now available from Verizon Wireless for $199 on a new two-year contract.

The gadget runs Android 2.3, a.k.a., Gingerbread, and features a 4-inch display, 5MP primary camera, front-facing secondary camera, 512MB RAM, 1GHz CPU and Adreno 205 graphics processor. Play ships with an 8GB microSD card. It is the first PlayStation Certified device.

SE also released a list of some of the games most recently optimized for play on the Play today:

The Play has been criticized for not being more powerful–a reasonable expectation for the first PlayStation device. What do you think, loyal reader? Are you excited to get your hands on the PS maiden Android voyage? Are you waiting for a second or even third generation before you drop the bills? Or, are you not all that interested at all?
