CDMA Sony Ericsson Xperia Play for Verizon hits the FCC, gets torn down
The GSM version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play first appeared on the FCC in early March, and today the CDMA version of the Play won FCC approval. Better yet, the FCC treated us to more internal photos of the device, which you can see below.
It doesn’t look like there are many differences between the GSM and CDMA versions of the Play. The CDMA Play even has a SIM card slot, even though CDMA devices don’t need a SIM card. It is possible that this is a 4G LTE SIM card slot, however neither Sony Ericsson nor Verizon has indicated that the Play will support LTE.
Internal photos of the device do give us a good look at its Elpida memory and Qualcomm power management chip. You can also see the device’s Synaptics touch pad, which is situated between the d-pad and main buttons.
We don’t have an official release date or pricing for the Verizon Play yet. However, leaked Verizon documents do list April 14th as a tentative launch date for the device.
