As part of its ongoing sale, O2 UK is now offering the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play on Pay As You Go for £149.99, just under a third of the price that the Play launched at back in May. That's an insanely low price for a phone with a 4-inch display, a 1GHz Snapdragon and 512MB of RAM, along with all the gaming benefits of the dedicated gamepad and PlayStation suite support. If you take O2 up on this offer, you'll be able to choose between the Xperia Play in the original black, as well as the O2-exclusive white.
Of course, as it's a carrier-branded, SIM-locked phone, you'll also have to wait a little longer for updates, and rooting the device is a little more complex than on an unbranded, SIM-free Xperia Play. Nevertheless, the £150 price point makes this almost a no-brainer for anyone on O2 looking for a gaming-centric Android.
