Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play to be PlayStation gaming phone?

Sony Ericsson's PlayStation phone could well launch as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, if a new batch of freshly-registered domains are anything to go by. XperiaX10Blog found Swedish PR agency - of whom Sony Ericsson is a client - Jung Relations has snapped up multiple "xperiaplay" domains, including the .com, .org, and .net.

Hooray look at that! Some dude on the other side of the world has a Playstation phone (otherwise known as Zeus Z1), and he (or I suppose it could be a she) put up two videos of it working.
