New Zealanders will not be getting Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play - aka the PlayStation phone - at least not from Vodafone.

Why? The carrier's entire shipment of handsets has been nicked.

So says Vodafone New Zealand's official Tweeter, who today posted:

"Regret to advise the Xperia Play launch will be delayed. Major security breach. The shipment of phones has been stolen."
