The Xperia PLAY is for Verizon, and is available on sale at Amazon Wireless. (Plus, according to my contacts at AW, you’ll get a bonus $10 app store credit if you get the phone through June 4th.)
This is the first Playstation-certified phone, has a slideout Playstation controller, an Android OS (2.3, or Gingerbread), and comes with 2 GB of pre-loaded games. Games include Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Crash Bandicoot, Madden NFL 11, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, and TETRIS.
I have an Android right now (the Samsung Galaxy S) and love it. I can’t even imagine having it slide out into a game controller. Freakin sweet.
Will you be getting one of these phones? I’d love to hear a review!
If you MUST have context, it looks like these photos/video were created by Dan Saelinger for the current issue of Fortune magazine. Apparently to get the right shot, 10 Xbox 360s and 8 Xbox controllers were destroyed. (gulp!)
These cases look really nice, smell good, and the engraving feature is pretty ridiculously awesome.
And for those of us without iPhones or iPods, (cough, me, cough), they engrave their normal phone cases as well. Here’s me rocking one for my Samsung Vibrant:
I’m a huge klutz with my phone, and I haven’t damaged it yet since I’ve had this case on! (Knock on wood…)
If you need any accessories for your phone (or DS, or iPad, or Wii)… this is the place. They’ll keep you functional and looking good. And they’ve got geek in the name.
PLUS, they love you all. They sent us a wood case for a Nintendo DS Lite or DSI to give away to one of your lovely selves. Just respond to this post with your favorite product from their site. You have until 11:59pm on Sunday, December 12th to enter, which will give you a little less than a week to encourage your friends and family to enter for you as well. ;-)
I’ll randomly pick and announce the winner on Monday, December 13th.
EDIT: You now have until 1pm PST to enter the contest. I’ll be randomly picking the winner shortly after that!
ANOTHER EDIT: We have a winner! Check out this post to see if you won.
You better hope I don’t decide to keep it…

The Etsy shop puts Toshiba hard drives into an old NES game. I don’t know why, but something about having the power of a 1TB hard drive in an old copy of Mario Bros just makes me thrilled. Who would have thought when we were first playing NES that we would have access to (or a need for) that much memory?
Prices range from $130 (for 500GB) to $180 (for 1TB). Yeah, you can find a hard drive for half that price on Amazon, but I can guarantee it won’t be as pretty or nostalgic.
Thanks to @andyfortson for finding. I may sometimes scare him with my Geek Speak, but he still finds me awesome stuff!
