in Xperia T3

Xperia StyleSony Mobile Germany will market the Xperia T3 as the “Xperia Style” in Germany. Deutsche Telekom will be the exclusive carrier for the Xperia Style, although it will be available SIM free at a recommended price point of €349. The Xperia Style will launch in August 2014 and will be available in all three colours (black, purple and white).

We’re not sure why Sony felt the need to change the name in one region, although this may have been driven by Deutsche Telekom. The Xperia T3 has a steel frame and measures 7mm in thickness, weighing 148g. Other specs include a 5.3-inch 720p IPS display, 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, LTE support, 2500mAh sealed battery and 8MP Exmor RS camera.

    For the same exact reason Sony Mobile Brazil renamed Xperia ZL to Xperia ZQ: Absolutely NONE.

    IMO I’d prefer phones with proper word names rather than alphanumeric names. Xperia 2011 had names and it was good.

    There could be prior products for sale that use the “ZL” name or branding in Brazil. Same goes for this T3, I bet you any money there’s already a product on sale in Germany called the T3, so Sony change the name to avoid any potential lawsuits.

    That’s really the only reason I can think of why they’d change the name for one country/market.

    Quick Google search came up with, to mention a few: Trucks & Busses parts, Real State Office, Urban Intervention, Savings Bank… But no products as far as I could find…

    Your theory is good, but I don’t think that is the reason. It’s not ZL or T3 alone. It’s Xperia ZL and Xperia T3. At least here (in Brazil), if part of a name was a reason like that, at least half of the placements in my city alone would have to change their names.
