Sony Ericsson Xperia Play confirmed for Three in UK

Xperia Play to land on all five major UK mobile networks

Three has become the final of the UK’s big five mobile network providers to announce it will offer the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play  handset, formerly known as the PSP Phone.

Following in the footsteps of O2, Orange and T-mobile which announced their intentions for the Xperia Play in the past 24 hours after Vodafone broke cover to be the first network to confirm it would stock the upcoming gaming-centric handset, an official Three press release revealed: “Three has just announced it’s ranging the Sony Ericsson XPERIA play over on @ThreeUK.”

Speaking on the network’s adoption of the Xperia Play Three’s Head of Branded Devices, Sylvia Chind said: “At Three we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA play. We believe this handset celebrates a further step change in the way in which consumers use data, merging mobile communications and entertainment.”

Chind went on to add: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA play is perfect for gamers but above all, it’s a top-of-the-range smartphone which is why we are so excited to be ranging it on our award winning network.”

Whilst full specifications and pricing for the Xperia Play remain a mystery, the device, confirmed to be officially unveiled during a Sony Ericsson press conference in Barcelona this coming Sunday, February 13th, ahead of the opening day of MWC 2011, is expected to land in the UK in April following arrival confirmation by Orange.

Does the widespread adoption of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play by networks give you faith in the upcoming handset or give the device a distinct whiff of bandwagon jumping? Let us know your thoughts on the device via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
