Sony has built something of a reputation for itself by putting together unusual, odd or vaguely unpleasant commercials in the past, but Sony Ericsson has outdone itself with its latest Android spot.

“Android is ready to play” claims the tagline, and we’re about ready to throw up. Still, it also confirms the “XPERIA Play” name we’ve been assuming would be the launch name (rather than “PlayStation Phone”) so we have to be thankful somewhere.
No word whether this will ever actually be screened or is more of an online hype-generator. We should find out more when SlashGear goes to Mobile World Congress in a couple of weeks time.
