Verizon Xperia Play 4G

Back in May the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, previously known as the "PlayStation phone," finally made its way to Verizon's shelves after originally leaking in October 2010. It looked to be a mobile gamer's dream come true, but some folks lamented its lack of hot features like a dual-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity. It looks like Sony Ericsson and Verizon may be planning to address at least one of those complaints, though, as the a new photo has shown that a 4G version of the device could be on the way. The image above shows that Verizon is training its employees on the "Xperia Play 4G" on December 12th (today) and 14th. Additionally, Android Central has reportedly confirmed with a source that an LTE version of the Xperia Play does actually exist.

So what else do we know about this mysterious LTE-capable Xperia Play? Not much, unfortunately, but here's to hoping that Sony Ericsson would see fit to throw in a few other upgrades while it's adding in LTE support. Also, the name "Xperia Play 4G" seems like kind of an odd choice since that's the name of AT&T's HSPA+ version of the Xperia Play. We're not in charge of naming Verizon phones, though, so perhaps the people that are don't see it as a big deal (or have something else in mind for when the phone actually launches). Anyway! We'll let you know more on this new Xperia Play when we do.
