Sony Xperia Z vs Google Nexus 4 aa (8)

The Sony Xperia Z is not only a sexy handset, but it also has reasonably powerful hardware and excellent water and dust-resistant capabilities. Unfortunately, the phone hasn’t exactly made a major impact on the U.S. market, largely because the only way to get the phone is to buy the non-LTE version directly from Sony. The good news is that this changes starting today.

Sony is now offering the handset with T-Mobile 4G LTE support for $579.99 outright. T-Mobile will also sell the Xperia Z come July 17th for $99.99 down with 24 monthly payments of $20. If you pre-order on the 16th, you will even receive a free Sony Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – while supplies last.

For those that need a refresher on the specs, the Xperia Z features a 1.5GHz quad-core S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, microSD, a 2,330 mAh battery and the power of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. These might not be bleeding-edge specs, but the Z is certainly no pushover.
