v0.1.0 alpha was the first publicly released version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition that was exclusively released for the Xperia PLAY gaming console.
There was a planned 0.1.0 Alpha that would have been released on Android, but the release was held back. The version would have had Black Touch Controls and the menu would have looked the same as v0.1.1 alpha. All we have today.
