All the major networks in UK will get the Xperia Play, but it seems like only O2 will offer a white version

O2 today announced via twitter that they will be offering a white version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play later this spring. All the major networks have said they will have the Xperia Play, but so far only O2 will have a white one.

During the Mobile World Announcement, CEO of Sony Ericsson, Mr. Bert Nordber told the press that the Xperia Play would be available in March 2011 and that the PlayStation certified phone would be available in the US first. O2 in the UK probably want some operator branding so the phone will not be available before April 1st

I'm slowly getting into the general gaming genre, especially now that there is alot more than the usual "kill everyone" types games that my son plays, and this is definitly the coolest colour of all. As watchers here know, I've never been into black devices and iPhone 4 white was always my first choice (as was 3gs which I did buy) though it has never eventuated.
this looks cool and maybe another choice over the arc if the right type of games are available for my taste.

I'm looking forward to this device, it's simply a great offering for gadget freaks.
I'll have to look for a non-branded white version on German ebay or something as I don't fancy trying to debrand the O2 one.
The gaming looks like loads more fun with the gamepad.
