Sony Xperia Z1S now available online from T-Mobile for zero down
That's not bad for a device as highly spec'd as the Sony Xperia Z1s, which includes a 5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU. 2GB of RAM is aboard along with 16GB of native storage. If you need more storage, you can always turn to the 64GB capacity microSD slot. A 20.7MP camera is on back while a 2MP snapper adorns the front, and a 3000mAh battery powers the handset. Android 4.3 is pre-installed out of the box. Don't forget that the phone is rated IP58 for water and dust proofing. That means it will survive a 30 minute submersion at 5 feet or less.
The phone can now be purchased online from T-Mobile, and will be in the stores starting January 21st.

Let us know how the experience is having a S800 on a 720P screen vs 1080p...
There should be a huge diffrence in browsing, opening pages and apps much faster and zippy

That's what I see on the Moto X. My Moto X screen looks smoother than my HTC One

I have the Droid Ultra, and it's lightning quick and the display is quite nice despite it being 720p. I like the display a lot better than my GS3 and my Droid DNA.
But, I can't wait to use Z1s and be able to get it wet. My girlfriend dropped my phone in the sink the other day while she was brushing her teeth and I thought my head was going to explode.

It has 1080p, i think your confused with the z1 compact. But it should probably run smoother than the orginal

It can be a good start for Sony in US.
I hope in 2014 every carrier can get all Sony phones, then a great sale will occur.

No doubt, I am psyched personally. I generally can't stand Sony or their products, but their new mobile Technology is NICE.

What products can't you stand? I for once started using Sony's product recently (little over 1 year ago) with the exception of my Car Stereos which I have always love, not just recently...
I got a HDTV and find it to have many great features that other brands do not offer, it is fully CEC compatible with my Sony Xperia phone, and it allows a side by side PIP so I can fairly share the screen with my wife...
Ever since I started using Sony Xplods also find them easier to set and use... Maybe it does not offer the biggest sound, but they have been very good nonetheless...
Finally I have had problems with all my Android phones (Moto, Samsung and now Sony) and my current Xperia is not the exception, but I do like their software and most of their hardware more than the alternatives...
Of course this is all my experience but I am interested in knowing what particular products you dislike...
I actually do not trust their notebooks too much... (i am a Toshiba/Asus guy)

Their TVs, their gaming consoles, their computers, hell even their old cellphones.

Wow... not the particular electronic segment I was expecting to hear... but you have your opinion.
Anyway good luck with the Z1s I will go for the Compact one... seems a bit more resistant and relatively better performer

Thanks man. The compact looks nice, I just like having a larger screen.
I really wanted the Xperia Z Tablet, but they really haven't supported it well, and I doubt we will see it on Kit Kat anytime soon, so I am glad that I went with a LG G Pad.
And you can think I'm weird, but there is a method to my madness sir, don't you worry.
