New and existing Vodafone customers are now able to place their orders for the two new Xperia series smartphones from Sony Ericsson, namely the Play and the Arc.
If you would like to get hold of the Xperia Play with its gaming controls and PlayStation certification, then you will need to get a two year contract, with £35 to pay each month. This will come with 900 inclusive minutes, endless texts and a 750MB data usage cap.
It may be too late to become one of the first 1000 people to order the Xperia Play via Vodafone direct, but those who were lucky enough to rank among them were also gifted a free dock to go with their new handset.
The Xperia Arc, with its class-leading slim design, is going to set you back £30 a month over two years, with an ample 600 inclusive minutes and 500MB of data bundled with the tariff.
Getting the Xperia Play or Arc via Vodafone is made doubly worthwhile if you have friends or family on the same network, because for the span of the deal you will be able to make unlimited calls to them.
