Xperia Play still arriving tomorrow

The world’s first ever official PlayStation phone, the Xperia Play, is still on track to launch in the UK tomorrow, Sony Ericsson has told MCV.

This is despite both Vodafone and O2 telling customers that they won’t be able to offer the handset as planned – the first for supply reasons and the second due to software bugs.

We can confirm that the Xperia Play handsets are still planned to launch in the UK for April 1st, as originally communicated,” a statement reads.

However, as of today, we have experienced a freight issue that may impact the number of Xperia Plays arriving at some retail outlets. This said, consumers can purchase Xperia Play as of April 1st at a number of stores across the UK.”

Details of exact handset availability will likely remain unknown until the morning.
