Last week Sonny announced that their new smartphone Xperia Z3v will be available exclusively through one of the largest US carriers, Verizon. The latest news from the tech giant reveals that Sony Xperia Z3 will be available at T-Mobile starting October 29. T-Mobile is an important competitor to Verizon and this move was expected sooner or later.
T-Mobile announced today that the new Sony Xperia Z3 will begin selling in their stores on October 29. This comes six days after Verizon announced their flagship smartphone, the Z3v.
Even if the two carriers are in competition with each other, for Sony this is a win situation having two of the largest US carriers selling its products in their stores. This is not the first time T-Mobile and Sony are collaborating. Over the last year and a half T-Mobile has been supporting all the Xperia smartphones, the Xperia Z3 being the third one.
T-Mobile announced that they will be selling the Xperia Z3 for $26,24 a month under a 24 months plan. This means that the total cost of the smartphone will be $630, $20 less than the iPhone 6. Those who are interested in purchasing the new Sony Xperia Z3 can do so by going to the T-Mobile site starting with October 15 (12 a.am PT) and order it.
T-Mobile has confirmed that they will be selling the new Xperia Z3 when Sony debuted its new smartphone last month at the IFA consumer electronics trade show. When Verizon announced their deal with Sony, it was a flashier one.
At the event Sony showed what the new Xperia Z3v can do: it can stream PS4 games using a normal Wi-Fi network. Worry not, the Xperia Z3 available at T-Mobile will have the same features and capabilities.
The differences between the Xperia Z3 and the Z3v are minor: the Z3v is bulkier and resembles the Z2 model, it has a bigger battery, but both smartphones are water proof and come with the same camera and display technology.
What do you think of the announcement T-Mobile has just made? Do you think it’s a good deal for Sony and its Xperia Z3?
