Xperia Play retail kiosks spied, name confirmed

Xperia Play retail kiosks spiedThis must be embarrassing for Sony Ericsson, we should give them the official title of the “‘worst manufacturer for containing leaks”. Not only have we seen a number of leaks across a wide range of upcoming SE handsets, more specifically on the Xperia Play, we’ve seen hands-on previews and even a tear-down. Now we can add another to the list, as the retail kiosks for the Xperia Play have been exposed.

The leaked pictures show a pedestal with the slogan “Smart Phone, Smart Gaming”. They also confirm the handsets name with the stand introducing it as “The New Xperia Play”. On top of the kiosk are three mock handsets, one we assume is meant to be the Xperia Play and the other two look like the Xperia arc. Check out a larger picture of the stand below. Also, if you can’t get enough of the Xperia Play we’ve also attached a video from Engadget where they went hands-on with the device in the recent Engadget Show.

    Perhaps it’s the cynics in me, but I get the feelings that these leaks are not an embarrassment at all to SE, but rather very calculated PR stunts.
    By “leaking” products to selected bloggers they ensure free PR, and not only is it free, it’s probably more effective on some people. After all, what do you think people who frequent this blog and similar ones find more exciting as a headline:
    1. New SE phone leaked
    or
    2. Sony announces new mobile phone
    ?

  • hows that embarrassing :s

  • Dan

    what models are the other two phones ? hard to choose with so many new ones :(

    The other two phones are probably the “Hallon”, not the Arc

    That phone pictured on the front of the stand doesn’t look like an Xperia Play to me. Looks like the fake mock-ups we were seeing months ago…
