Congratulations India, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has arrived in your country! The Xperia Arc has also come along for the ride. Sony Ericsson has officially announced the availability of the two Android Gingerbread phones in the country, pricing the Xperia Play at Rs. 35,000, and the Xperia Arc at Rs. 32,000.
Those who pre-ordered either the Xperia Arc or the Xperia Play from Flipkart or Letsbuy.com will not be regretting their decisions, as the prices that were then quoted were substantially lower than the official MRP, just like with the Samsung Google Nexus S. The Arc was priced at Rs. 28,499, and the Play was priced at Rs. 30,999, so you can expect street prices to be at around the same level.
