Play.com has started to take preorders for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, now scheduled for launch this summer.

Announced last month, the Xperia Ray runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and sports a 3.3in, 480 x 854 touchscreen display of the type Sony E calls a "Reality Display".

The handset also packs an 8Mp camera, complete with a Sony Exmor R sensor usually found in the company's standalone snappers.

Three has already confirmed it will offer the handset, but it's Play.com that has taken the initiative and started taking advance orders first.

The Sim-free Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray will set you back £350. Shipping starts from 15 August, says Play. ®
