Sony Ericsson representatives have told Fudzilla that they expect the Xperia PLAY to be the first (or one of the first) handsets to ship Android 2.4. It appears as if they company are determined to reverse mistakes made with the X10 line and the lengthy delays in between updates. Android 2.4 may even already be in testing judging from a previous leak, although the company rebutted this, saying it was a misconfiguration.
SE plans to make sure the entire new Xperia line-up will get Android 2.4 from day one (or near enough). They also said that the Xperia PLAY will ship with five games when it launches in March, with football and car games taking priority. We will be posting our hands on impressions of the device later this week.
