Xperia Play, Galaxy Gio, and enV Pro Join In On The FCC Fun

We got off to a good start with FCC docs earlier today, but now the floodgates have really opened: there are filings available on the Samsung Galaxy Gio, the LG enV Pro, and the eagerly-anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.

The Galaxy Gio is a mid-range Android with a 3.2-inch HVGA display, first announced by Samsung at the end of January. It speaks UTMS V for compatibility with AT&T, Bell, and Rogers 3G networks. We weren’t anticipating the phone arriving in North America anytime soon, but it should be well-equipped for it if and when it does.

LG’s VS760 is likely the enV Pro, once thought canceled. The dual-screen QWERTY smartphone has broad network support, handling 850/1900MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE/CDMA/EvDO and 1900MHz WCDMA/HSPA. This model has been floating around since last fall (the report shows its RF testing was all the way back in August) with the carriers seemingly lost as to what to do with it; maybe this means it’s nearly here after all these months.

While the FCC only has made testing documentation available for those two devices, the Xperia Play has a full assortment of manuals and photos to go along with it. Of course, we’ve seen pictures of this phone from every angle imaginable, so there’s not much actually new here. While we already saw the European edition of the phone pass by the FCC, this time it’s got the proper 3G bands for North American service.
