Verizon to begin selling Xperia Play next week Verizon will bring the Xperia Play smartphone to the U.S. next week, May 26th.
Sony's "PlayStation Phone" is an Android device that has slide-out gaming controls.

The device has been available in Europe for two months now but the American launch kept getting delayed.

Sony's smartphone will come pre-loaded with Madden NFL 11, Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, The Sims 3, Star Battalion, Crash Bandicoot, and Tetris.

The smartphone will cost $200 with 2-year contract.

Sony's Xperia Play has a 4-inch display with 854x450 resolution and will be powered by a Sony Bravia engine for smoother video playback.

Under the hood, the device runs a single-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, an Adreno 205 GPU and 512MB RAM.

Thanks anyway...

I can't trust that they will not remove critical features that I paid for.

I can't trust that they will restrain themselves not install any kind of rootkit or spyware to steal my information.

I can't trust their servers to secure the information they steal from me.

I can't trust the hackers that steal said information...but I think I might trust them just a little more than Sony.

Never. AT&T only has crappy phones...

Oh yeah! I almost forgot, it's a SONY product. AT&T is assured to have it.
