Sony Ericsson Xperia Play CDMA Phone at FCC, Detailed Images Inside

April 4, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have told you earlier that the Federal Communications Commission is the best place to find info on the latest upcoming devices. We go there often to bring you reports on the new devices and technologies knocking at the FCC door for approval. As we wait to get something new, it is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play that has caught our eye at FCC door now.

The GSM version of the Sony Xperia Play came to the FCC in early March. It is now the turn of the CDMA version. As we get some info on the device, we have been lucky enough to stumble upon some detailed pictures of the innards of the Sony Xperia Play. Going by the pictures, we tend to think there is no big difference between the GSM and CDMA versions of the device.

Though, the CDMA devices usually do not sport a SIM card slot, the Xperia Play has that too. We believe that the slot is meant for a 4G LTE SIM card. However, we will take more time to confirm it.  We find the Elpida memory and Qualcomm power management chip that have been included as significant. The images also give us a good treat of the Synaptics touch pad too.

We guess we may have to wait a tad more to know what is on the release and pricing front. The device is to come on Verizon probably on April 14th, as had been hinted by a leaked Verizon document. We just have to wait for that day to dawn so that we get to play with the Xperia Play CDMA phone. Watch this space.
