It’s official, the Xperia Z is heading to T-Mobile USA exclusively this summer. T-Mobile says that the LTE-enabled version of the Xperia Z will be available in the “coming weeks” in both black and purple (the latter in limited quantities).
T-Mobile plans to offer the device on its Simple Choice Plan with no annual service contract plus unlimited talk, text and Web on its 4G LTE network. However, no pricing information is available for the handset just yet, although interested parties can register their interest on the Xperia Z product page.
T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is currently available in seven metropolitan areas: Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose; and Washington D.C. The company expects to reach 100 million people by mid-year and 200 million nationwide by the end of the year.
T-Mobile’s vice president of product marketing, Jason Young, says that its customers “will love the Xperia Z with its big, beautiful HD screen, water-resistant design and advanced camera features. This is an outstanding combination: a premium 4G LTE smartphone with Sony’s best features coupled with T-Mobile’s unlimited data and speedy nationwide network.”
