Sony Ericsson Xperia Play hits O2 after two month delay

O2 launches Xperia Play with exclusive white model

O2 launch Xperia Play with exclusive white handset

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has finally launched on O2 in the UK almost two months after the gaming-centric smartphone launched on other networks.

O2 has today confirmed the availability of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play having held the handset back for almost two months from its official release due to issues it had with the device’s software.

The bubbly network will exclusive host the Xperia Play in white whilst also offering the portable blower in its standard black form.

Available for £430 as a standalone PAYG handset, O2 will also offer the Xperia Play on contracts with the handset coming free of charge on a £37 per month two year deal that will see users given a monthly allowance of 900 minutes and unlimited text messages. 500MB of monthly data will set those looking to take up the offer back a further £6 per month.

Despite the near two month delay the O2 arrival of the Xperia Play comes sooner than expected with the network provider announcing earlier this month that the handset would not land until June.
