Tuesday was supposed to be the day for the launch of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play Android gaming smartphone for Vodafone New Zealand. But there was a problem. Turns out there was a major security breach and thieves made off with the launch shipment of handsets.
The mobile operator notified its customers via its official Facebook page, posting the following message with a photo of a damaged Vodafone store: [Vodafone New Zealand regrets] to advise the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY launch will be delayed due to a major security breach. The launch shipment of phones has been stolen.
