Sony Ericsson Xperia Play release date set for April

Orange and T-Mobile to host Xperia Play from April

Orange has become the latest UK mobile network provider to confirm it will host the upcoming Sony Ericsson Xperia Play PSP Phone leaking that the long awaited device will be available from April.

With O2 having already announced via Twitter “Awesome news - the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is coming to O2,” Orange’s PR manager, Conor Maples, took to the micro-blogging site to declare, with a slight misspelling, "Yes we are due to take the Experia Play [sic] in April."

Speaking directly with T3 a fellow member of the Orange PR team confirmed that the service provider will indeed be stocking the Xperia Play in the UK from April as will the company’s Everything Everywhere brethren, T-Mobile.

Whilst no further light could be shed on an exact arrival date or pricing on the Android powered device, the latest confirmations see Orange and T-Mobile join Vodafone and the recently declared O2 as providers of the forthcoming Xperia Play leaving Three as the only major UK network yet to confirm its intentions for the gaming-centric handset.

Will Sony’s PSP Phone really be worth the hype and excitement or will it fall far short of expectations? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
