It can be quite frustrating when a particular device that seemed to hold so much promise in the beginning lacks just one major feature that is a given on similar models in the range – case in point, the HDMI output that is missing on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play smartphone. We know that this is going to be a gaming centric handset, and to have the ability of blowing up the images for some big screen action might be extremely tempting, so why was it left out in the specifications list to date? As they say that hope springs eternal, so here we are with a particular screenshot which might just point towards such a reality as you see above.
There are no exact details as at press time, but two photos have already made their way to the Internet, showing off the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play being connnected to a HDMI TV, and obviously the only way for that to happen would be to have both of them “talk” to one another via via HDMI, no? No idea on whether this is a microUSB to HDMI cable, or is it some sort of more advanced Xperia Play that is being kept under wraps.
