Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play
The Xperia Play uses the stock Android music player. From what I can tell, it hasn't changed a single line of code, nor added a single feature to it. It's the same-old, same-old.
The Xperia Play has no music services pre-loaded. No Amazon MP3, no Slacker, no Pandora, not even Verizon's crummy V CAST Music Store or Rhapsody. Finding and purchasing music and adding it to the Xperia Play are all on you.
The Xperia Play does not include a separate video player application, though plenty are available in the Android Market. It does include the Android YouTube app, which is great for snacking on bite-sized videos. There are no movie rental or purchasing options on board.
I was easily able to sideload video content. That content is found in the main gallery app, and the gallery software will play it back no problem.
