Anonym, 07 Oct 2014Hardly. Sony phones have a nasty tradition in the US: - They arrive late. - They are general... moreBlame US discriminating policies against Japanese companies that intentionally dealy and obstruct custom clerence.
I really hope they bring white to the US. Not feeling the boring old black!
Anyone know if Z3 has any chance to make it to ATT&T. I don't feel like switching to T-Mobile and don't want to pay the full price for unlocked phone.
I've just realized the Z1 and Z1S are no longer on T-Mobiles site. That could be an indication the launch of the Z3 is around the corner.
AnonD-183154, 07 Oct 2014Yeah, another carrier exclusive phone. You go Android system. We want 20 phones based on the s... moreAndroid operating system* and it is not exclusive to T-Mobile, and Google does provide a lot of software updates for companies that use the Android (which is an Open Source OS). Android L is coming very soon.

Yeah, another carrier exclusive phone. You go Android system. We want 20 phones based on the same hardware and no software update ever.

Personally, I've always found it less expensive to import Sony devices than to buy them on the US market.
Mark, 07 Oct 2014So all Sony customers in Europe (and other parts of the world) are basically sponsoring cheape... moreHardly. Sony phones have a nasty tradition in the US:
- They arrive late.
- They are generally unavailable.
- They are very expensive, sometimes more expensive than just importing them from Europe (mostly due to how late they arrive, whilst in Europe retailers already did a few price cuts here it is launched a full price).
As such I do not see what elements are there to say US costumers will get a cheaper phone that is subsidized by EU costumers. That's not what the tally is saying.
The 32GB is a nice touch, but that has more to do with the demands of the carrier than anything else (it's quite common to have carrier versions in the US, sometimes they are better -- wireless charging -- but sometimes they are worst -- lesser main camera).
So all Sony customers in Europe (and other parts of the world) are basically sponsoring cheaper, better equipped phones for the United States customers.
