C-Spire Wireless gets the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY for $49.99
C-Spire Wireless continues making it into the headlines after it boggled our minds by offering the iPhone 4S. Now, the regional carrier has another juicy offer - the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY for $49.99. You arrive at the affordable price tag after a mail-in rebate and after signing a two-year agreement with the carrier. The Xperia PLAY, first offered stateside by Verizon Wireless, might be a bit late to arrive on C-Spire, but it’s still unmathced with its slide-out gamepad.

It’s also the first PlayStation-certified handset with a limited yet growing selection of apps. There are seven apps on the C-Spire-bound Xperia PLAY: Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot and Tetris.

Now, this might turn out to be a good gift for the gamer on the go, so let’s freshen up your mind about the specs of the Xperia PLAY. The handset comes with a 4-inch display with a resolution of 480x854 pixels, a 1GHz Snapdragon SII chip with Adreno 205 graphics and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The handset runs on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.
