About 10 days ago, we announced that the Playstation phone was about to be released at O2 carrier on the 1st of April but things have been delayed because of some software issues. Those of you not aware about what this phone can do, you should know that it is the first Sony Playstation phone the world has ever seen.
The 4 inch display (which provides a native resolution of 854 x 480 pixels) can slide to the side to reveal the gaming controls, similar to those if any portable gaming console. The phone runs the Android Gingerbread operating system and comes with the best feature you could expect to get in a cell phone designed for gaming. I think that it’s safe to say Sony Ericsson has proved once again that it knows its way around entertainment.
Back to the issue at hand, though. The device seems to be experiencing some software-related problems. According to Stuart Hibbert which is the head of O2’s device testing team, the company is trying to avoid any unpleasant situations that users may come across if they bought the device with such software errors.
Since the new Sony Ericsson Xperia Play was prone to be launched in the stores of every retailer in the UK, Vodafone and Orange will probably stick with this launching date set for April the 1st. It is surprising to hear that O2 was the only carrier that reported such issues as we somehow doubt that all the Xperia models with problems ended up in a single place. This is a great disadvantage for O2 which will lose some important devices that could have made decent sales figures. Anyone, there is no information available on the new release date of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play at O2 but I’m pretty sure that most people interested in the device will have already chosen the competition’s services.
