Mobile application security vulnerability report

Sony Ericsson's PlayStation phone - the Xperia Play - now has a UK release date and price. It has also been confirmed that the gadget will come with six pre-installed games.

The six titles have changed slightly since we discussed the launch of the Xperia Play at Mobile World Congress. The UK line-up is now: Bruce Lee Dragon Warriors, Crash Bandicoot, Fifa 10, Star Battalion, Tetris and The Sims 3.

Of course, a further 50 titles will be available through the PlayStation suite from current smartphone titles to PSone classics.

The Android-based Xperia Play, which features a 4in touchscreen and 60fps video playback, will hit UK shop shelves on 31 March for £500 Sim-free. ®
