Havok and Sony Ericsson have announced the availability of Havok’s product suite to Android developers, optimized for Xperia Play, Sony Ericsson’s recently announced smartphone aimed specifically at gamers. Havok has a fully optimized build of its industry leading product line ready for licensing by Android developers on Xperia Play as part of its entry into Android.

“As part of Havok’s overall support for the Android platform, we are very pleased to partner with Sony Ericsson to put the full power of the Havok product line into the hands of Xperia Play developers. We were extremely impressed by the performance of the Xperia Play and the ease with which we were able to port and optimise our technology to the platform. This will enable developers to use Havok technology to create cinematic, rich 3D immersive games for Android smartphones with Xperia Play in the forefront," said David Coghlan, managing director of Havok.

Havok has now fully ported all seven of its products to Gingerbread (version 2.3), the latest version of Google’s Android platform and partnered closely with Sony Ericsson to deliver a specifically optimized runtime ahead of launch.

 “Xperia Play is not only a fantastic smartphone on the latest Android platform, it also offers the best mobile gaming experience available. We are very pleased to be working with Havok to bring new levels of cinematic and immersive gaming experiences, never before seen on smartphones, to the Android platform," said Steve Walker, head of marketing at Sony Ericsson.

Xperia Play will be based on Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 system-on-chip clocked at 1.0GHz, will feature 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM and so on. The smartphone that will reportedly be based on heavily customized version of Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" operating system will feature 4" screen  with 854x480 resolution. The hardware inside the Sony Ericsson PlayStation phone will be vastly different from that inside PlayStation Portable or PlayStation and therefore Sony will be able to completely control the content that will be playable on the device.
