Best Buy selling the Xperia Z for $899

by XB on 23rd April 2013

in Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

XZThere has been much speculation on whether the Sony Xperia Z (C660X) will make its way Stateside. Rumours currently point to the fact that a C6606 SKU may be in the works for T-Mobile that will support the necessary LTE bands for North America.

However, if you’re in the US and are not worried about LTE support, then you may be interested to hear that Best Buy is stocking the unlocked European LTE version of the Xperia Z (C6603). It’s not cheap though, setting you back $899. If you’re not bothered about your handset being water resistant, you want to go for the Xperia ZL instead, which is a cheaper $760 in the Sony Store and will give you the right LTE support too.

    you can buy it for $599 at Amazon…

  • MG

    The problem with the C6603 is not that it won’t support LTE in North America but it also misses 3G at 1700Mhz and 1900Mhz frequencies leaving only the 850Mhz available.

  • Xyor

    Yeah..for both att and t-mo are lacking half of the frequencies

  • This is just smart advertisement for best buy people will check to confirm then find out they actualy much cheaper later on.


    Fuck you all

  • NO U

    I dont think this phone is coming to the US. i dont think any of the carriers are interested in losing the ability to rip off customers who come into their store saying they got water damage on their phone. Either that or Sony just cant sell the phone to the carriers

  • Hamza Salau

    Yeah I don’t know y they didn’t opt for the c6602 instead that way they could say it gets hspa+

  • I have the C6603 in NY on ATT and I have HSPA+

  • dude

    This almost as bad as the nexus 4 sold for 500 € here.

  • harbinger2020

    On the sony US website, it still says “coming soon” for the Z. Also a sony rep told me it’s coming soon but didn’t know the date

  • PLL

    899$? Are they insane? For $649.99 (without contract) you can buy HTC One. Wake up, Sony!

  • Hamza Salau

    price match with and get if for 606.99

  • Hamza Salau

    my guess is that it is the c6606 which will support the lte and the hspa+ of tmobile and att hopefully it comes out before the end of may

  • You can also buy the C6602 in a store like At GSM or MobileCityOnline if you are in NYC. It is cheaper than Best Buy.

  • TechGuyChris

    Yea they I know they told me that to via twitter sometime ago.

  • $550 on ebay just for today!!
