The XPERIA Play will launch in Spain on 1 April, cost 649 euro - read the full textWe hope this is an early April Fool's joke - the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play will apparently be launching in Spain on 1 April, for the hefty 649 euro SIM-free price. It will come with 6 games preloaded but the price still seems pretty steep. Vodafone Spain will offer the white Sony Ericsson XPERIA...

we've had the SE rep in and in the UK it will be £40-£45 per month! its a stupid amount of money for a phone that is lower spec than the arc but at a higher price!

I'm waiting for that phone for so long , let's see who will win the gaming devices battle (iPhone 4 or I wish 5 soon vs XPERIA Play ) that will be a tough competition for both companies , they both have a long gaming history ( of course Sony has more history but iPhone is the standard for mobile gaming now ) finally some competition :))

this phone will bring every single play station product down. at this price, play station will loose all its market to Xbox and Wii if this phone fails.

for 649, it would be better to buy a proper ps3 with 5 games and xbox Live or buy a Motorola Zoom or Blackberry Playbook or an Ipad2

a phone more than the price of a high class tablet. i dont think so SONY Ericsson. All us Xperia X10 users hate you and will never buy your products again specially at this price where this wont be upgraded to next version for sure.

Nexus S is 600 and gets the new firmware updates first and is well worth it.

You can proberbly get a games console and a decent smartphone for cheaper than this. What is happening with pricing for these phones? Same with tablets

well, if the google nexus S can be 600 euros, then why not this one cost 649, at least its SE (name for quality). Have u ever used Xperia and see the oportunities of it!? i bet when u feel that u'll probably buy for even more :)

Both your links are dated 7th FEb (before MWC) whereas this ^^ one is 16th FEB i.e. after the MWC 2011.

Froyo and Gingerbread supports dual core:

As the above source says 2.2 and 2.3 DOES support dual core and 2.4 will bring a tighter focus on multitasking.
