Sony Ericsson Xperia Play delayed by Vodafone UK, too
The delay at Vodafone is not caused by a software issue (like in O2’s case), but by supply issues.
According to VG247, Vodafone sent out this notice to customers who’ve pre-ordered the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone:
“Sony Ericsson have advised us that they will not be able to supply the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to meet the original launch date of 1 April. Unfortunately, this means there will be a small delay to your order.”
Even so, Sony Ericsson says the Xperia Play will be available on April 1 (tomorrow) in the UK, as initially planned. It’s just that you won’t find it at O2 or Vodafone.
