Xperia Play Launching this Spring with Verizon Wireless

The day of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play event, as teased on the day of the Super Bowl XLV, is finally here and some exciting details regarding the release of the device have been revealed.

As it turns out, the rumors were true. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will be launching in the United States exclusively through Verizon Wireless in early spring of 2011 after the device begins shipping in March. Not a Verizon Wireless customer? The gaming smartphone is also set to launch on other wireless carriers and will be announced accordingly by the respective wireless carriers. By the looks of it, so far only a CDMA device will be releasing because of the Verizon Wireless exclusivity. However, GSM devices are bound to release as soon as the Xperia Play is release in the other territories given that the overseas carriers are primarily GSM-based networks.
