Late last year before the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play formally received it’s name there was rumours that this PlayStation phone would have a price tag of under $500. Last week in anticipation of their Mobile World Congress announcement of this gaming device Sony Ericsson created a Facebook contest where 10 lucky people will be the “First to Play” with the Android Xperia Play.
For us Canadians Rogers is the carrier that will be releasing the Play. The only date given is “this Spring” and no word on pricing… but according to the terms and conditions the contest “ends 11:59:59 pm ET on March 21, 2011″ and “The Approximate Retail Value (ARV) of the Prize is $400.00 US/$397.36 CDN.”
Clearly this is unconfirmed dates and pricing for Rogers but could start the speculation of when and how much. The Xperia X10 was released at $549.99 so what do you think the no-contract price of the Play will come in at? $599.99?
