The Sony Xperia Z will finally be available with a U.S. carrier, according to what Sony CEO Kaz Hirai has said at a recent conference.
Speaking with reporters after appearing at All Things D‘s D11 conference, the Sony official has admitted that there was still “a lot of stuff to do” in the U.S. market for the company. Included in the “stuff” is also selling the Sony Xperia Z in partnership with a carrier, which the Sony CEO has confirmed that the company will be doing shortly.
He also said that improved efforts in the marketing department would be necessary.
The Sony Xperia Z has been available in the U.S. for a while now through Sony’s own Store and, while you could get it unlocked from there, not all buyers would be willing to pay the full price for the device. Even if the Sony official didn’t mention a carrier it was planning to sell the device through, you may remember that the Sony Xperia Z has been spotted in the wild sporting T-Mobile branding, which seems to be a pretty good clue as to where it’s headed (it has even made an FCC appearance a month ago).
Until the Xperia Z does make its way to a U.S. carrier, you can get a better idea about what it can do in our thorough review.
Are you planning on getting Sony’s water-resistant flagship, when it comes to U.S. carriers or did you already get the unlocked version?
