The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play was supposed to be arriving for O2 customers in the UK on April 1st, but the launch date got pushed back. But for those of you wanting to get your hands on the device, the wait could be almost over.

Joe Minihane over at T3.com is reporting in an article that that O2 have said in an official blog post that the Xperia Play is “nearly ready”. The handset has been held back by the other networks but was put down to shipping delays.

O2 have put the delay on their network down to buggy software which would have affected the experience owners would have had with the handset. O2 stated they had been thoroughly testing the software, and they are now satisfied the handset is almost ready to be released.

The trouble is O2 have not yet revealed an exact date for the Xperia Play to be released, and we don’t have any pricing plans for the handset. But this must be only days away now, and surely it is better to have the handset working properly before consumers get their hands on it.

Are you waiting for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play on O2?
