AT&T to get GSM version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY
While Verizon customers got a head start in the States when it came to picking up the PlayStation certified Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, a GSM variant of the phone is coming to AT&T. With HSPA+ connectivity, the device will be known on AT&T as the Xperia PLAY 4G and will be available at the end of the year, hopefully in time to catch the holiday shopping season.

The handset will be pre-loaded with games, some of which, like Dungeon Defenders Second Wave, are exclusive to the AT&T version of the Xperia PLAY. 150 titles will be available for the phone by the end of 2011. The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY is equipped with a 4 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 854. Android 2.3 is on board. A single-core 1GHz  processor is running the show with 512MB of RAM and ROM installed. We must not forget the Adreno GPU graphics processor under the hood. A 5MP camera with LED flash is on back and captures video at 720p. The side sliding, landscape oriented game controller makes playing games on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY as easy as if you were playing on a PlayStation.

With Big Red's version of the phone going for $199.99 with a 2-year contract, we would expect AT&T's price to be in that ballpark.

Let's see if it can be a little more successful with AT&T than it was with Verizon.

This is one of them phones that are intriguing and would entice me to buy it if it was on my network, but at the same time not worth paying the early termination fee and switching networks for. It'll be a lot more successful if it had launched on all carriers instead of limiting it to just one.
