Sony Ericsson Xperia Play “nearly ready to go on sale” at O2
O2 is currently the only major UK carrier that doesn’t sell the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. That’s because the company found some bugs in the handset’s software just before the initially-planned release (which was scheduled for April 1), and decided to postpone the launch.
Now O2 is happily reporting that Sony Ericsson sent new software, and the smartphone is “nearly ready to go on sale.” There isn’t an exact launch date yet, but it’s quite possible that we’ll see the Xperia Play on O2’s shelves before the end of April.
Interestingly, the new Xperia (the world’s first PlayStation-certified phone) is already out of stock at Vodafone, which says it will ship new units in about 3 to 4 weeks.
O2 will offer the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play in both black, and white – the white version being exclusive to the carrier for the UK market. You can check out the smartphone here at O2’s official website.
