It’s now officially known that Rogers will be releasing the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and arc on April 28th. Some lucky people will actually be able to purchase this on the 27th at select Sony Style locations. A couple weeks back we showed you an excel speadsheet with the pricing but it’s always good to get a bit more confirmation. Taking a look at the internal doc shows the same price plans for both at:

3-year promo: $99.99 ($45 monthly voice and data plan)
2-year contract: $449.99
1-year contract: $499.99
No-contract: $549.99

Some additional bonuses for the arc is that it comes with a 16 GB microSD card in box and the Play has an 8GB card. The Play will also come pre-loaded with FIFA 10, Madden 2011, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, Bruce LeeDragon Warrior, Sims 3 and Asphalt 6: Adrenaline.

(Thanks tipster!)

    i want the arc on fido… buy from rogers, spend more money to unlock it? -___-

    1 and 2 year contract pricing is a rip-off as usual. 3 year price of all smartphones should be $0 at most.

    • Julien CV

      And if you live in QC, with Bill 60, 1-3 year contract, its all the same. Might as well get it for 3 years and pay the cheapest.

      why? in the states the high end phones are usually 199.99 on 2 yr contracts and people have to wait the full 2 years now to upgrade. Rogers does 3 yr pricing every 2 years as well. If anything they should just do away with the pointless extra year on contract for people who plan on getting a phone every 2 years. The ones who choose the 3yr should get the phone free and be eligible for a new phone every 3 years

    Anyone complaining about not having these phones on fido grow up if your so cheap as to go with fido then u should know they dont carry good phones or have good plans unless ur on social assisstance

    • Baester

      these aren’t good phones.

    • Cadet

      btw, i spend my own money to buy an unlocked SE x10 mini pro (it was only around $400 back then)
      thank you very much
      along with my other phones which were all brought unlocked but used fido services say…over the past 10 years

      it was a hope that they would let fido have a good phone
      does that makes me cheap?

      if you are new, i don’t blame you
      fido used to have the newest phones until rogers brought them out

      but if you see me needing social assistance and cheap just because i HOPE fido would have a good phone
      you are looking down on everyone that uses fido =]

    My goal is to re-sell those phones to americans and use the profit to aquire a NTT-Docomo Silver Xperia Arc SO-01c.
