That strangely off-putting Android ad with the human thumbs was trying to tell us something after all, people. Mainly, that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play phone is arriving soon. Soon, as in February 13th.

OK, so maybe it's actually the company's Facebook page that told me this. But the ad ran again this evening during the Super Bowl with a date at the end so, uh, watch it again and don't puke.

Nothing quite like surgically sewn on human thumbs to give the ol' Android some sex appeal, eh? "official" reveal arrives on Sunday. On Facebook, because that's where the kids get their cellphone gaming news these days. [Sony Ericsson Facebook Page]
