Sony Xperia Z2 not coming to any U.S. carrier, available only on Sony's website
At first, it was expected that the Sony Xperia Z2 would be an exclusive for T-Mobile in the states. After all, the nation's fourth largest carrier had the Sony Xperia Z in its lineup, and now carries the Sony Xperia Z1. Then came a rumor that Sony's latest flagship handset would be an exclusive for Verizon. But on Friday night, a published report cites Sony itself as saying that no U.S. carriers will get their hands on either the Sony Xperia Z2, and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.

U.S. citizens will get a crack at the Xperia Z2 later this summer when the unlocked version of the phone becomes available via Sony's U.S. online store. As far as the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is concerned, U.S. consumers will need to go overseas for this one. Not only won't the highly spec'd mini be seen on the shelves of any U.S. carrier, it also will not be offered online.

Considering Sony's plans to offer its newest flagship handset every 6 months, by the time U.S. smartphone buyers have the opportunity to buy the Sony Xperia Z2 from Sony's website, it might be close to the unveiling of the Sony Xperia Z3.
