In the UK, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play probably hasn’t been doing very well sales-wise. We say that because the smartphone has seen price cut after price cut after price cut over there, yet the madness hasn’t stopped. For now the Xperia Play has received yet another, you guessed it, price cut.
Unlike previous occasions though, it isn’t an independent third-party retailer doing the cutting, it’s O2 itself. The operator has decided that it needs to clear some Xperia Play stock, and as such it has given it an incredible price. See, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play can now be yours for just £149.99 on O2 Pay & Go. Sure, that probably means that the phone comes network locked to O2, and it may also mean that you need to get a top-up when purchasing the handset, but seriously… this looks like a great deal. That is, of course, if you don’t mind having O2 as your operator.
And, naturally, if you think the whole idea of having a sliding gamepad on a phone is pure genius. If you meet all of the above conditions, do head over to O2 right now and get yourself a brand new Xperia Play.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has a 4-inch 854×480 touchscreen, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing cam for video calls, a 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 400 MB of built-in storage, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSPA, GPS, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
