Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY 4G for AT&T is arriving on September 18 for $49.99
Slowly permeating into the hands of US consumers, the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY 4G for AT&T is making its official debut on September 18th, but more importantly, it’s going to grab some attention thanks to its aggressive price point right from the start.

Verizon customers who decided to pick up the handset when it was first release stateside might be kicking themselves, especially when they paid $200 for the so-called PlayStation Phone – whereas AT&T customers are going to have it much easier. In fact, AT&T is asking prospective customers to dish out a mere $49.99 with their signature on a 2-year agreement to pick up this gaming centric handset. And even though there isn’t any upgraded hardware with the handset, customers should be pleased to know that it’s an HSPA+ enabled device.

In addition, this version that AT&T is being blessed with is available in an exclusive ‘stealth blue’ paint job. Just as a refresher, the handset features a 4” display with a resolution of 480 x 854, 1GHz single-core processor, Adreno 205 GPU, and Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread. On the gaming front, it’s preloaded with titles like Dungeon Defenders, Asphalt 6, Star Battalion, The Sims 3, Tower Bloxx, and Crash Bandicoot.

Agreed... we're all supposed to be impressed with the inferior "4G" network they tout. Pewp.

I'm a Sony Ericsson fan and I've been waiting for AT&T to get this phone. Sure, the 4G isn't LTE, but HSPA+ actually performs well in Charlotte, NC. Plus, the asking price for a true gaming phone is a steal.! AT&T has been really competitive on pricing their new phones lately.

wonder how easy this is to root, I'd get one to use as my travelling phone since I'm already on Sprint.
