Our Canadian readers will be happy to learn that Rogers has begun taking orders for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and Xperia Play. According to recent reports, both Android 2.3-powered handsets are expected to arrive later this month on April 28.
Pricing is consistent other high-end Rogers smartphones at 99.99 Candadian dollars ($103) with a 3-year commitment or 549.99 Canadian dollars ($571) outright. Effective today, interested customers also can go to their local Best Buy and preorder either phone with a $50 down payment.
As a refresher, the sleek Xperia Arc features a 4.2-inch super LCD screen and an 8.1-megapixel. What's more, with a 0.3-inch profile, it's also among the thinnest smartphones on the market.
The Xperia Play, commonly referred to as the "PlayStation phone," recently went on sale across a dozen markets across the globe. While the United States was not among the first countries to offer the handset, it should be hitting Verizon any day.
