Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Hits FCC Again, This Time Sporting GSM


So far we have confirmation that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be available on Verizon Wireless, a carrier that operates over a CDMA network. We also have word that Rogers will carry the phone in Canada, which makes this FCC filing for a GSM variant of the “Playstation Phone” not all that surprising.

Still the idea that the phone has been confirmed to not be a Verizon exclusive in the States gives our minds license to wander. Might this GSM version make it to the compatible 3G bands of AT&T? Even without an official release, that shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish. Will Sony take a similar approach as Samsung and LG in terms of carrier agnostic handset distribution?

  1. it should be coming to tmo…saw the displays for it…but that could have been Europe only…

  2. well, i hardly ever use the physical kb on my droid, gaming on this will be much much easier (especially emu)

  3. If they play emulators half as good as they look like they do, I am going to buy a used one after they’ve been out for a long time (so I can get it cheap) just to install all of my emus and ROMs on it.
    In the meantime, I want to try out a Droid/Droid2 Game Gripper. They looked pretty good in the Phandroid review I watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9_QCscCUt4

  4. AT&T better get this

  5. hoping for a TV out or HDMI cable support! great for emulators yes

  6. Sony needs to throw a quad-band radio in this thing and send it to every GSM carrier around the world.

  7. forget at&t… Tmobile should get it
