Play.com Shipping Xperia S January 30th


It looks like we may be seeing a release of the Xperia S much sooner than we originally thought. It was first believed that the device wouldn’t be here until later in the quarter – March to be specific – but UK retailer Play.com’s listing for the device says that it will be coming January 30th – that’s just one week from now.

Shocked by the date on the listing, The Inquirer reached out to Play to confirm January 30th availability and they said it wasn’t a mistake at all. The Sony Xperia S was announced at CES (see our hands-on) and will ship as one of the first smartphones without Ericsson branding as Sony and Ericsson look to end their mobile phones partnership, the former swallowing up the latter.

It’s a pretty good device with its 4.3 inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 12 megapixel camera and NFC chip. You can put your preorder in now for 450 and it will ship for free.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. It’s great that the Xperia S is coming so soon but I wouldn’t touch Play.com with a bargepole. Their customer service is terrible.

  2. Play.com have gone down hill since they where taken over last year also there prices have sky rocketed compared to other websites.

  3. So I’m assuming this is going to be a UK exclusive phone and the Ion will be coming to the US via ATT? Guess I wait around for a successor to the Xperia Play on VZW.

  4. Sony early release=win

  5. When will this thing see ICS?

    Let the betting begin..I’ll go with sometimes in the later part of 2012.
