Everything Everywhere, a joint venture of T-Mobile UK and Orange UK, is rumored to sign the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play, previously known as the PlayStation phone, for the joy of all UK gamers. The device has been making headlines with spied videos and reviews from Asia in the past two months. Its launch is anticipated during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this February.
Orange, the carrier's “premium” brand, is believed to get the XPERIA Play. The phone is expected with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board with a proprietary Sony Ericsson customization. A dedicated PlayStation app will access games, while some apps like RomBuddy have been shown to run titles like Resident Evil 2 and Ridge Racer bringing us back to the times of the original PlayStation.
There is still no official launch date, but it is just weeks until the MWC kicks off, so stay tuned for more details.
