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?
