Want to enjoy Android games in PlayStation style? The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, a PlayStation-certified Android 2.3 smartphone, is selling for $698 after a trade-in value of $180 (usual price $888) at PC Show 2011.



And if you prefer to have a thin and light Android smartphone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc will be a good choice. Equipped with Google Android 2.3 and a Qualcomm 1GHz processor, the Xperia Arc is priced at $838 without contract. You can also find these phones at the various telcos on level 6.

ViewSonic

Viewsonic may be a latecomer to the tablet scene but they do have a couple of interesting tablets on their portfolio to challenge their rivals. Lookout for their booth at level 6.



Here's Viewsonic's star buy at the PC Show, the ViewPad 7. Packed with Android 2.2, this 7-inch tablet can also function as a smartphone. Promo price is listed as $499, and that's a hundred dollars lesser than its standard retail price.



Can't decide on a Windows 7 or Android tablet? You can have the best of both OS with the ViewPad 10, now priced at $799 instead of $849. The 10-inch tablet is powered by an Intel Atom N455 processor with 1GB DDR3 SDRAM.



Here are the prices for the rest of Viewsonic's tablet configurations.

Apple iPad 2

It's not surprising that the iPad 2 is drawing in the crowds as well. The cheapest configuration will have to be the 16GB model with Wi-Fi, priced at $668.



The best thing about a white iPad 2 is you don't have to wait for it. The second generation tablet comes in white or black, and is powered by a dual core A5 chip.
