Sony Xperia Z gets ripped apart by the FCC
In Washington D.C., the air is electric and the feeling is one of optimism and hopefulness. It's not like we haven't seen this before, but this time there is the feeling that those in charge will get it right. The inauguration? No, we're talking about the Sony Xperia Z which just made a trip to the nation's capital to visit the FCC. There could have been a mob scene at the airport reminiscent of the Beatles first arrival at JFK in February 1964. After all, this is the phone that captured quite a buzz at CES, even withstanding Sony's Rube Goldberg-esque dunk tank that showed off the water resistant ability of the handset.

Along with the usual collection of legal papers, the FCC included in the documentation some tear down pictures of the Sony Xperia Z. We are thinking that if we can just get our hands on the parts, we can call up that guy who put the phone together in less than 5 minutes on the video we showed you last week.

Anyway, for your perusal, read on to get a gander of the Sony Xperia Z, gone all to pieces.

The first photo I think it's Xperia zl not z. As you can see the volume buttons are near the top and the phone seems to small to be z. And it seems like the camera is at the bottom too.

It is a Z. Why? Because the ZL has a camera placed at the center and in the image above in number 1, you can see that the camera is placed to the left so that means this phone being ripped off is the Xperia Z

If I were Sony I would give Michelle Obama a Xperia Z, she will use it and take pictures of her husband taking oath.

Then a promotion campaign will follow: The Z, the Inaugural Phone

Title a little misleading. I came on here expecting something bad.

Man I didn't realize the Z had a sealed in battery! Why!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really like this phone but non removable battery is a deal breaker for me. I need to be able to quickly swap out batteries one of the reasons I don't use Iphone , used to love HTC til the one series, and now Sony too. I don't like this trend in the industry.

The trend is so they can make the phones thinner, which IMO is stupid. It is a ribbon though so it would be easy to switch if you needed to replace it.
