Wirefly said it is coming to VZW... Is that still true? If so, this is my new phone... Not even concerned about 4G LTE....

I have wanted this phone ever since it was (unofficially) announced, and since it is coming to VZW, for whom I work, I will be getting this one. I really wish it was dual core but I can deal with it and I know 4G wont be in my area for a while so I am not worried about that. I have wanted physical, dedicated gaming keys for a long time because I play a lot of games and now I can have it. Cant wait for emulators to take advantage of the keys.

And of course, Verizon will find a way to add extra charges for game playing and all that other stuff.

Boti95 Don't be silly. I'm sure that since it has a playstation app and a special place in the market that you'll just have to purchase the games themselves.

If it was going to be 4G LTE it probably would have been mentioned as today was the official unveiling of the phone. Also it says right in the article that it will do HD recording. Of course it will be 3G, it's Verizon. All the other phones they are unveiling are Bravia so why wouldnt this one be? How do you suppose Verizone will add extra charges for game playing? I'm guessing you're one of those haters who has either never had the service or feel jaded in some way by the company, I'm guessing the latter. The games will cost money to get but that most likely will be handled by Sony since it will be coming from their Playstation Suite app.

This would be a pretty badass phone to have and it's great that Sony Ericsson is finally making a device for VZW. Is it at all possible that it lacks support from Android game devs? It would really suck to buy the phone and only have a handful of devs supporting it. Really the only reason I would like to have this is because of the nostalgia effect. It would make me feel like I'm on a PS1 again.

1500 mAh won't be able to keep up long enough...

online gaming only over wifi is a bit of a let down.
4G gaming would make so much sense for this device. sony never seems to have their act together to release the right hardware at the right time. also on that note, a faster processor would make perfect sense too. how hard would it be to get a 1.2ghz in this thing?
all that said, since i wont see 4G coverage for a year give or take, i might jump on this. especially if they can get it out soon.
just think of the ps1,2 titles that they might port to this thing!!!
