According to Power's checks of T-Mobile locations, reps in the stores are recommending the Sony Xperia Z third after the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Apple iPhone 5. As a result, the analyst says that the phone is recommended at T-Mobile about as often as the HTC One is. On the other hand, the reps at AT&T have nothing but nice things to say about the Nokia Lumia 1020. But according to those who toil for the nation's second largest carrier, the high price of the camera-centric model ($299.99 on contract) plus the hassle of learning a whole new OS (Windows Phone 8), are two of the factors keeping sales down. At AT&T retail stores, only a few have sold out of the device. At some locations, Power and his analysts were the first people to inquire about the model. But with the phone just launching on Friday, the Baird analyst admits that his survey is "Obviously an early read," and to him it "still feels like an uphill battle for Nokia and Windows."
