Default Official Release of the Minecraft Pocket Edition for the Xperia Play

The first version (Alpha 0.1) will focus on the creative aspects of Minecraft. ...
  • Randomized worlds
  • Build anything you can imagine
  • Build with 36 different kinds of blocks
  • Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
  • Save multi-player worlds on your own phone
...we’re planning to continue developing the Pocket Edition for a long time with frequent updates

...Minecraft – Pocket Edition is now available in Android Market (only visible to Xperia Play devices) for $6.99.
I don't suppose anyone has that phone and can buy it and do a review ?

Maybe you can crack the ROM of another android phone and make it look like an xperia phone to the market
But without the control buttons it's probably pretty hard to play anyway

well I have a Samsung Galaxy 2, it's dual core I am sure you could play minecraft on it, just need a customised gui

apparently this is a special release for the xperia, with a release for other android phone slated "in the near future" but for e3 this is a special deal done with sony

Interestingly, the one thing that this version doesn't have is screenshots (e.g F2 on the pc version). However, people have noticed that there is a camera in the image file used for items. It is yet to be introduced into the game. It is not known whether it will also be used in future pc versions:
