Sony Ericsson today revealed the Xperia Play, a long-rumored and leaked gaming phone. Surprisingly, the company announced that Verizon Wireless will be among the first carriers to launch the Play, in "early spring". The phone sports high-end specs, Android 2.3 "Gingerbread", and slide-out gaming controls. Key features include 4" screen, 5-megapixel main camera, 1 GHz main processor, and Adreno graphics chip.
VZW announces something related to pricing and these boards light up like the 4th of July with nasty remarks. A major device from a GSM carrier associated with a major videogame console gets announced for said network, and the board is dead silent.
I would not have believed this in a million years! SE does NOT do CDMA phones. What gives? I remember that little blue oval Ericsson phone Verizon sold in 2003 before Ericsson exited the theater and there was a Sony square handset that was flimsy a few years earlier. I would be very wary of jumping on this one. It should be interesting to watch though. What a shock!
