Optimus 3D And Xperia Play On Pre-Order In UK For Over £500

This is just one of those early, unsubsidized, let’s-not-freak-out-yet prices, but still. £520 works out to nearly 850 of our anemic US “dollars.” What does Sony-Ericsson think this Play thing is, the PSP 2?

And the Optimus 3D — it’s certainly a beast of a phone, but with the 3D effect not blowing us away and the market for that kind of thing rather limited, I’m not sure it’s going to move a lot of units without an 80% carrier subsidy. Hey, it happens.

The prices come from Play.com, and should be taken with a grain of salt. We’ll probably hear some soothing, corrective words from S-E and LG over the next week.
