Hirai, speaking at D11, bragged how the Sony Xperia Z was the number one selling smartphone in Japan for 6 consecutive weeks in a row. "It’s literally a feat," the executive said. While no specific U.S. carrier was mentioned, last month we showed you pictures of the Sony Xperia Z with the T-Mobile brand. At the time, the word around the barber shop was that the nation's fourth largest carrier was testing the phone.
Hirai also noted that Sony has a lot of work left to do in the U.S. market, and added that increased marketing will help the Japanese manufacturer pick up market share in the country.
