Verizon has just outed the details on an impending update to the not so popular Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. The update will bring the gaming smartphone to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread (no ICS here) and will fix a few bugs and even add a screenshot feature. More details are available from the Verizon update document below.

Verizon is slowly updating all their phones while we sadly all still are waiting for an update for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, although sources have told us an updated build was recently submitted and should be arriving soon. Sony themselves have released ICS for the Xperia (link below), only that build won’t work with Verizon’s model.

While the Verizon Play awaits ICS this update does bring it to the plenty old Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. Along with the update users can expect to see a screenshot feature, Verizon video on demand, a new method for delivering games, and more. Sony has fixed some charging issues and added camera enhancements but that appears to be it. All the details are provided in the document from the gallery below for those interested, and hopefully ICS will be coming next.
