Nokia Lumia 925 and Sony Xperia Z confirmed for T-Mobile release on July 17th

Nokia Lumia 925 and Sony Xperia Z confirmed for T-Mobile release on July 17th
Yesterday, we heard a rumor that the Nokia Lumia 925 for T-Mobile could be released in about two to three weeks or so, and it looks like that rumor was accurate. A new leaked document is showing that the device will officially launch along with the Sony Xperia Z on T-Mobile on July 17th.

According to the rumor from yesterday, T-Mobile stores were on track to get dummy display units next week, which usually happens about two weeks before a product launch.

A new internal play sheet from T-Mobile shows that July 17th will be the day for both the Lumia 925 and the Xperia Z. TMoNews is reporting that the Lumia will cost $99 up front, and $20 per month for 2 years, or $579 up front. No word on the Xperia Z pricing. 

Another interesting part of the play sheet is that July 14th has been blurred out, but still clearly shows the label "Major EIT Release". It's unclear what that might be, but the suspicion is that it will be the start of T-Mobile's UNcarrier Phase 2 plan, which would remove the need for a credit check when signing up for the service.

I thought the same thing about the 925. Both should have been out already.

Well I did want the 925, but on the 11th I get to see the EOS so I might as well wait.

Lucky I work late that day so I can't go to the event. I might sell my Lumia 920 to get the EOS.

Lol live stream that is. If I got an EOS it would have to be unlocked and idk if in want to pay That kind of money. Maybe a used 920 since those will get amber update and be close to par with 925

Honami, why would I get a Z now? Hmmm I'm wonder if the EOS is coming to Verizon?

Regarding the Xperia Z price, I'm hoping it's $100 USD down payment with $20/month for 24 mos. that is 100+480=580, which is about the same price for the unlocked C6602 and C6603 models for online retail. However, if the rumors of the upgraded Z with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU is true, I'd hope it would be on this T-Mobile model. Then I wouldn't mind paying more than 100. unlikely that the T-mobile exclusive Z is the i1 Honami? I can hope.... Doing this, it would also justify why Sony would release it on T-Mobile carrier now when the unlocked phones have been on the market for 5 months already...

The EIP is usually 20 months, not 24

Dear Nokia/T-Mobile, I'm having a hard time buying the one high-end Nokia phone T-Mobile gets after such a big and long awaited announcement as the EOS and paying over $100 more than the 920 for a phone with half the storage. I really need to slap someone or get a valid explanation as to why these decisions were made.

Valid point on the storage space. I think I'm gonna find a used 920 and unlock it. Then wait patiently for EOS.

Try to get one already unlocked. Unlocking a native AT&T phone can sometimes be a PITA. Speaking from experience as a Lumia 900 user on T-Mobile.
