The Playstation phone is coming soon, and it may be hitting multiple carriers here in the US. It will officially be called the Sony Ericsson XPeria Play, and carriers around the globe are starting to confirm that they are getting it. Here in the US, no one carrier has yet confirmed that they will carry the phone. But it is definitely coming to the US.
Early screen captures of the phone showed screen captures of the phone asking for a SIM card, indicating that it would be a GSM phone. For the US, that would indicate either AT&T or T-Mobile. However, according to a side by side comparison of the Xperia Play and iPhone 4 done by Wirefly.com, Verizon is the listed carrier.
It would stand to reason that multiple carriers will offer this phone. That is the case in England, and will most likely be the case here in the US as well. This might be the only real challenger to the iPhone in terms of total sales, as this phone is expected to be huge amongst gamers.
The Xperia Play will officially officially be revealed this weekend ahead of the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, which begins on Monday. That is when we'll most likely find out the details regarding which US carriers will offer the phone. That's not too long to wait and speculate is it?
