Sony Xperia Z coming to a U.S. carrier soon says Sony's CEO
Sony CEO Kaz Hirai may not know it, but he has put a wide smile on the face of a number of U.S. consumers on Friday. The executive said that the Sony Xperia Z, the biggest buzz producer of CES 2013, will be coming to a U.S. carrier soon. The model is water and dust resistant, which Sony showed off in Las Vegas. Based on Sony's recent Boy meets Girl ad, we would imagine that teenagers from coast to coast will be happy to get their hands on Sony's flagship phone.

Hirai, speaking at D11, bragged how the Sony Xperia Z was the number one selling smartphone in Japan for 6 consecutive weeks in a row. "It’s literally a feat," the executive said. While no specific U.S. carrier was mentioned, last month we showed you pictures of the Sony Xperia Z with the T-Mobile brand. At the time, the word around the barber shop was that the nation's fourth largest carrier was testing the phone.

Hirai also noted that Sony has a lot of work left to do in the U.S. market, and added that increased marketing will help the Japanese manufacturer pick up market share in the country.
