Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Arc hit Vodafone pre-order

Official contract pricing revealed

TechRadar rating:

3 stars

An interesting take on the PlayStation phone concept that still leaves a lot to be desired in terms of gameplay and hardware design.

Like:

Pleasant feel to button presses; Attractive chassis; Strong speakers; Decent music player;

Dislike:

Overpriced; Poor game selection; Laggy browser; Hard to get comfortable grip; Weighty;

Vodafone has opened pre-orders on both the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc today.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be available for free on a £35 per month 24-month contract, just as we suspected.

The network will throw in 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of data each month, and the first 1,000 people to pre-order will get a free Sony Ericsson dock too.

On to the Arc

Meanwhile, the Arc comes in a little cheaper; free on a £30 per month 24-month deal, which gets you 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data a month.

Anyone who pre-orders either handset in March will also enjoy free Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls for the life of the contract.

Both Android Gingerbread-running handsets are set for launch very soon – the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play UK release date is 31 March, while Vodafone says the Arc will hit on 1 April.
