The Sony Xperia S was officially unveiled at CES in January, and is currently the Japanese manufacturer’s flagship phone. You know what? We kinda like it.
One of the poop things we noted about the Sony Xperia S, however, was the lack of access to the PlayStation Store. Really, Sony? Really? But fear not, as that particular wrong has now been made right.
International owners of the Sony Xperia S can now enjoy the various gems on offer from the PlayStation Store, though less than 20 PSOne originals are currently available. We can’t help but feel that Sony is missing a trick there.
Having said that, when I’m playing proper games (i.e. not Angry Birds clones, or games where you run from left to right and simply press jump, or match-three efforts…), I’d rather play on a balls-out console. You feel me?
Impromptu gaming rant aside, the Sony Xperia S has some sexy specs, including a 4.3in 1280 x 720 display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 32GB internal storage, and a 12MP camera with 1080p vid cap.
The Sony Xperia S ships with Gingerbread (Android 2.3), but Sony promises an update to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) in summerish.
