O2 revises PlayStation phone release date

Out early June, if Sony Ericsson splats last few bugs

Boost IT visibility and business value

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play smartphone will finally make it to O2 next month, the network operator said this week.

Originally due on 1 April, the Android-running game-centric handset was pulled by O2 at the eleventh hour after fail to pass the company's network-friendliness tests.

Other carriers went ahead and launched the phone, presumably satisfied with its performance.

Thanks to a series of firmware updates, the Play is now nearly ready for deployment on O2, blogged Stuart Hibberd, head of O2’s testing team.

But he cautioned that the Play hasn't yet been certified by O2 and the smartphone will only debut on the network "if everything goes to plan". There are still bugs that are being worked on, he said, but said he is "confident that they will be fixed shortly". ®
