Buy the Sony Xperia Z1 right now from Cincinnati Bell for $299.99 on contract
Regional carrier Cincinnati Bell has a brief history with Sony. Back in May, it was the first U.S. carrier to offer the Sony Xperia ZL. The Xperia ZL carried a 5 inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution in a rather nifty little casing. Unlike most handsets where the panel makes up 60% to 68% of the phone's body, on the Xperia ZL that figure is 75%

That was 6 months or half a year ago, and times flies. Now, Cincinnati Bell is offering Sony's latest flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia Z1. The Japanese manufacturer stuffed the device with high-end specs. Consider the 5 inch screen with the 1080 x 1920 resolution and 441ppi pixel density. Powering the device is a quad-core 2.2Gz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is inside and there is 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using the 64GB capacity microSD slot. The 20.7MP camera on back has an f/2.0 aperture which should allow it to capture great shots even in low-light conditions. The front-facing snapper weighs in at 2MP, perfect for selfies and video chat. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

Cincinnati Bell is asking $299.99 with a signed two-year pact. While there is no LTE connectivity, you can still enjoy 4G speeds with the quad-band HSPA+ hook up. And don't forget that it has IP58 certification making it both water and dust resistant.

In Finland it doesn't matter since all the phones are unlocked. No matter if you buy them from a carrier or not. Bad thing in that is that you always have to pay a full price for the phone.
