Vodafone to stock the Nexus S and joins O2, Everything Everywhere and Three in confirming the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

Vodafone will stock Google’s new smartphone, the Nexus S in the UK and globally later this month. The operator will also stock a white version (pictured) of the handset, which it holds exclusivity for.

Manufactured by Samsung, the Nexus S is the first phone to run Android 2.3, also called ‘Gingerbread’ and was originally only available in the UK through The Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy UK.

The operator would not provide an exact date for the release saying only that the handset would “soon be available”.

Meanwhile Vodafone, O2, Everything Everywhere and Three have all confirmed they will stock Sony Ericsson’s latest handset the Xperia Play – also known as the ‘Sony Playstation phone’ – in the UK.

An Everything Everywhere spokesperson said: “We can confirm that we plan to offer this device [the Xperia Play] across both our Orange and T-Mobile brands in the UK in April. More details will be available in due course.”

O2 made the announcement using its official Twitter account saying: “ Awesome news – the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is coming to O2. An O2 spokesperson would not comment on the release when pressed by Mobile News.

Vodafone confirmed the handset would be available through its stores but did not specify a date or pricing. A Three spokesperson also confirmed the network would stock the device but would not say when.

    They may have a good network but their support is terrible! I am still looking to get my credit report sorted after they added two non-existent defaults to my account but as they don't exist they can't remove them.

    Problem is there is no law to get them moving yet this mistake from them means I cannot get credit and will not be able to for over 6 years. Worst of all I have only been a customer with them 6 months and never missed a bill!
