Sony Xperia Z3 will be available at T-Mobile
T-Mobile USA confirmed that it’s going to offer Sony’s brand new Xperia Z3, though the carrier has yet to provide an exact release date for the handset. All that T-Mobile is saying for now is that customers will be able to buy the Z3 sometime “this fall.” In other parts of the world, the new smartphone should be released before the end of September – so maybe T-Mobile will have it by then, too.

We don’t know how much T-Mobile will ask for the Z3. However, since the Xperia Z1S was released earlier this year for $599.99 (no contract required), we assume that the new Xperia will carry a similar price tag.

As we already told you, the Xperia Z3 is only 7.3mm-thin, and has a water-resistant body (IP65/68-certified). It’s an incremental upgrade over the Xperia Z2, and you can see its main new features here.

Before unveiling more details about its Sony Xperia Z3, T-Mobile posted an unboxing video of the handset, which can be watched below. You should also to check out our own Xperia Z3 hands-on from IFA 2014.

The Z3 will be just one of T-Mobile’s new high-end Android handsets available this fall, as the carrier is also getting ready to launch Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge. Exciting times are ahead, isn’t it?

Yeah, they skipped the Z2, probably because T-mobile updated their phones once per year, and the Z2 was only half year away of their Z1S.

Because the Z2 was an incremental update from the Z1.

A better Z3 may be coming to Verizon:

"Sony announced today that the Z3 will come to T-Mobile, but not to any other U.S. carrier. But the Z3v documents sent to us show a Verizon model with a Verizon logo on the back and references to NFC and wireless charging. A screen shot shows Amazon Music, the Amazon AppStore and Kindle preloaded. The documents also show 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM, and a MicroSD card slot in the Verizon model of the device."

If I'm not mistaken any android device can have the amazon App Store.

If this leak is true, to me the interesting changes are the 32GB storage and wireless charging. That puts the Z3v more in line with what a flagship should offer today. Not a measly 16GB.

It has a micro sd card slot so storage shouldn't be an issue.
