XPERIA PLAY

Xperia Play

We had one big problem with Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play: getting it back from our game-crazed teen. That's because this sleek Android phone is also a pocket gaming machine. Slide up the 4-inch touch screen to reveal a miniature controller based on the PlayStation Portable model. The Play comes preloaded with six games, including Madden NFL 11 and Sims 3, with dozens more available to download. It's also a state-of-the-art phone that lets you check e-mail, surf the Web, snap photos and, yes, make calls. Per our monosyllabic 15-year-old son: "It's awesome." Can't ask for higher praise than that.
