Xperia Play ready for tomorrow's launch

Sony Ericsson has revealed that their brand new whizzy handset, the Xperia Play, is still on track for its scheduled released tomorrow, despite rumours that there wouldn’t be enough supply.

Vodafone and O2 told their customers that they wouldn’t be able to supply the phone on release because of software bugs and the rather vague ‘supply reasons’, however Sony Ericsson has said that while the ‘freight issue’ (whatever that is) has caused a hitch in the delivery of the handset to some retailers, it will be on sale in the vast majority. Hooray!

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