O2 Xperia Play

British network O2 has announced that it's delaying its launch of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play due to bugs discovered in the phone's software. In a post on O2's blog, testing head Stuart Hibberd says that it won't be able to hit the previously-announced April 1 release date, as it's still working with Sony Ericsson to iron out the issues discovered in testing.

O2 hasn't published a revised release date for the Xperia Play, but based on the way this sort of thing usually works, we'd expect the delay to be a matter of weeks rather than months. [O2 UK Blog] Thanks to Chris for the tip!

Personally not interested in either the phone or the carrier, but kudos to them for communicating with their customers.

This is a step in the right direction. It will increase their goodwill in the market.
