Went with a Sony Ericson Xperia Play. On top of having many games optimized for it, it has actual stereo speakers that tbh, don't sound bad at all and have great volume without distortion.
Already rooted it, have the unlock code from sony for the bootloader and will be installing one of the modified 2.3.4 rom's on it tomorrow.
The biggest gripe I have with the phone is the wifi strength really sucks in comparison to my old Droid 3 so I can't stream Youtube and such while outside of the house like I could with my Droid 3.
The slide out keyboard and overall build quality of the phone are great imho and the screen, while having a lower resolution than my Droid 3 is a lot more attractive and has excellent viewing angles.
Oh, and I got it for $45 shipped in like new condition in a full retail box refurbished by Sony Woulda gotten the Optimus X2 but it woulda cost me 2x what the Xperia Play cost.
Once I start making better pay with the truck driving thing I'll likely invest the money in a real good android powered media device in the $300 - $500 range but for now I still have to watch my expenditures.
