Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to launch on Verizon?

Because the phone has yet to be introduced, it is unknown which carrier will be launching the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, but Wirefly might have given away the answer to this mystery. In a comparison chart that shows the specs of the Apple iPhone 4 vs. the Xperia Play, it lists Verizon as being the carrier for the Sony Ericsson handset.
Verizon customers could have a tough choice to make. After all, the Xperia Play is no slouch when it comes to specs. The phone will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread installed right out of the box. A 4 inch LCD display weighs in with resolution at 480 x 854, and there is a front-facing camera. Of course, you can't forget that slide-sliding game controller that has game players excited.
Is Wirefly's intelligence correct? By Sunday evening, we should know. Sony Ericsson has had its troubles finding a carrier to subsidize its smartphones in the U.S., but because the Xperia Play is so unique, the joint-venture does have a good shot at getting a major U.S. carrier to sign on the dotted line.

Sony Ericsson never got any love from Verizon anyway, I hope they give ATT a high end, good quality phone in return for all the bad phones they got from them

I don't see it. Not that it wont happen but won't the Xperia Play be available all over the world? So why release it as a CDMA phone and not a GSM? Unless i'm an idiot which I probably am and haven't taken LTE into consideration.
