Deal: Sony Xperia 10 on sale for killer prices on Amazon and Best Buy
Despite the fact that Sony Mobile won't be focusing on the US market going forward, the Japanese company will still sell its smartphones through local retailers. Other markets like Australia, Canada, South America, Africa and parts of Asia haven't been so lucky, as Sony will no longer sell its devices in these regions.

So, if you want a Sony smartphone and you're living in the US, you won't find them at local carriers, but there are plenty of those at all major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, Walmart and others.

If you want a cheaper Xperia phone though, that's going to be a bit trickier. Luckily we can help you with that if you're not aiming for a flagship smartphone. Best Buy has the mid-range Xperia 10 on sale for $300, $50 off the MSRP. However, you'll have to activate the smartphone the same day you buy it with AT&T or Verizon. If you plan to activate your newly acquired Xperia 10 with Verizon, the price will drop to just $250.

Amazon on the other hand won't require customers to activate the Xperia 10, but the US retailer only offers a $50 discount. Also, keep in mind that only the silver color is on sale at Amazon, whereas Best Buy has both black and silver versions available for the same low price.

"Despite the fact that Sony Mobile won't be focusing on the US market going forward" Ummm, you mean since they've never focused on the US. If LG can put out a phone on every carrier in the US so can Sony, or at least every GSM carrier. I can see Sony closing up their mobile unit within 3 years which will be a shame. I've always wanted to try one but never could get one on the carrier I was with (formerly Alltel then Verizon then Sprint). Now that I'm with at&t they put out something I'm not remotely interested in. Too tall and narrow and way outside what I'm willing to pay for a phone.

$50 off is not killer.

A killer price is half of what this phones original price costs. Price it like the Redmi series, that is my definition of "killer", it'll sell like hotcakes!

This isn't a bad price, too bad Sony won't sell smartphones in Canada anymore. If they launched the Xperia Compacts officially in Canada, they might've lasted longer here. I would've bought one. They could've targeted a niche who are tired of ever increasing screen sizes and took a chunk of the market share from Samsung and Apple.

Yeah, major trash with GDH price. Tall and narrow with plastic back. Cannot tell whether you are holding a phone or a remote control.
