As you all may be aware, it’s not every day we see a Sony flagship device pass through the FCC on its way to America. Most of the time, even if a Sony device does hit our shores, it is months after Europe and Asia has access, and carrier exclusivity takes its tole on most people who are even interested to begin with.
This week, it appears that the Xperia Z3 from Sony has already hit the FCC, en route to an unknown carrier here in the US. Curiously, the Xperia Z3 has yet to be made official from Sony, with previous signs pointing to the device being announced at IFA in September. (more…)
In likely an attempt to clear their shelves, Expansys is hosting a deal on select Google Play Edition devices. As of right now, customers can pick up the G Pad 8.3 GPE, Galaxy S4 GPE, One (M7) GPE, and Z Ultra GPE with big savings. (more…)
Recently, Google removed the Xperia Z Ultra GPE from Google Play, leaving only a few devices on the site for Android lovers to purchase. In a close-out sale, Expansys looks to be clearing their shelves of the device as well, pricing it at a complete steal of just $349.99. That’s quite the savings off of its original retail price of $649.99. (more…)
The Xperia Z2 Tablet from Sony is now up for pre-order exclusively through Verizon, but if you were looking to learn a bit more about the device, Big Red has published the above video to bring you up to speed.
For starters, if you didn’t already know, the Z2 Tab features a 10.1″ Triluminos (1920×1200) display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, and comes running Android 4.4.2 with Sony’s custom skin on top. (more…)
The Xperia Z2 Tablet from Sony is now available for pre-order through Verizon’s website. This development comes a few short days after a leaked screenshot showed employee training had begun for the device.
Verizon has the distinction of being the exclusive retailer of the Z2 Tablet. It’s available on the carrier’s website for $599.99 without contract or $499.99 with a two-year agreement. (more…)
Within the last hour, we reported that Verizon would put the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet up for pre-order starting tomorrow. Verizon has now made that news official, by announcing an exclusive hold on the tablet in the US that will run customers $599. For a limited time, Verizon will let you buy Sony’s flagship tablet for $499 with a new 2-year contract, though that sounds like the worst deal in the history of tech.
The tablet will be available in Verizon stores on July 17, just as we reported. (more…)
American buyers know that Sony doesn’t have a major presence here in the States anymore. Even if we do want one of the OEM’s devices, say the Xperia Z2 for example, we have to wait months upon months before having even limited access on carriers through exclusivity deals. As a consumer, it blows.
Finally, Sony has made the Xperia Z1 Compact available for US buyers, purchasable from their website for the price of $549.99. (more…)
No matter how many times Sony denies it, leaks have the Xperia Z2 pegged as a Verizon exclusive on American shores. When it will exactly hit retail, however, is another matter entirely.
Thanks to new information courtesy of PhoneArena, there is reason to hope that a launch is just around the corner. A screenshot of a Verizon employee training module shows an online course for the Xperia Z2. That’s a far cry from confirmation, but could be a sign that an announcement is imminent. (more…)
