Tweet shows that the Sony Xperia Z1 is coming to T-Mobile
A tweet from evleaks reveals that the Beast from the East, the Sony Xperia Z1, is heading to T-Mobile. In the past, Sony has had a tough time getting its top-shelf models onto the roster of U.S. carriers, but the buzz created by the CES appearance of the Sony Xperia Z at the beginning of this year, helped the water and dustproof model get picked up by T-Mobile.

The Sony Xperia Z1

The Sony Xperia Z1

The Sony Xperia Z1 is even more drool producing with its 20.7MP rear snapper and the f/2.0 aperture that promises great shots, even in low-light conditions. Driving the phone is a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with the Adreno 330 GPU working on graphics. A 3000mAh cell might be enough for all day use, and the 16GB of native storage can be buffed up with the 64GB capacity microSD slot. While Android 4.2.2 comes with the Sony Xperia Z1 out of the box, there has been some talk that the unit will be among the first to receive Android 4.4.

The leak did not offer any specific launch date, but with a leak of this magnitude, we suspect it won't be such a terribly long wait for T-Mobile customers. Also unknown is a pricing range for the model, and whether or not T-Mobile will also be getting its hands on the Sony Xperia Z1 f. This is a power packed mini version of the Xperia Z1 that keeps most of the specs on the full-sized model except for screen size and resolution, and the capacity of the battery on board. That unit was introduced on Thursday by DoCoMo.

Waited too long to edit, but doesn't the Z1 have the Adreno 330, not the 320?

I think most of us can agree that Sprint is the worst carrier, T-Mobile has some pretty good coverage and speed, plus they're cheaper than Verizon or AT&T.

I disagree!... We can all agree it depends on where you live,work or visited, each carrier has their weak area of services. Cause I'm loving my Sprint services...

Wow where do you live? Here in Seattle Sprints 3G network is brought to its knees and I often get 100-200 Kbps, sometimes I encounter a fledgeling LTE tower which runs at 2.0 Mbps. Just last month I went to Waikiki for a wedding and it showed 4 of 6 bars of 3G and yet I couldn't even run a Speedtest, the network was just dead. I tried sending a text over Google Voice and it would just sit there for 15 mins before it would send. It was totally pathetic. Sprint has really dropped the ball on their roll out. Last year around this time I had an Evo 4G running on their EVDO network and was pulling 1.2 Mbps right after they did their Network Vision upgrades, but those nice days are long gone.

As a former Sprint user, completely agree for my area. Got really tired of streaming music cutting out because of a bad network. Never happens with T-Mobile.

DUDE. Sprint is the WORST carrier. I've had them now for 12 years and I'm paying 4 ETFs to leave them this month. I cant stand paying for an overloaded data network, and horrible voice coverage any longer. We're headed to Verizon. I'd do T-Mobile but I already have a T-Mobile work phone.

Don't go with Verizon. They will nickel and dime you with "service fees" every single month. I left them in 2011 and never plan on going back.

Seems like you're hating on T-Mobile since they deliver the fastest speeds and cheaper plans, all with no contract. :')

I'm so glad I switched to T-Mobile from AT&T. They were charging like crap, I spent .5 grand to break the contract and switched to T-Mobile. Now it seems like it was totally worth it, I'm probably never gonna switch with the way things are going. T-Mobile FTW.

WHY NO OTHER CARRIERS?!?!? Sony, you're really losing my favor...

T-Mobile was the only carrier that opted for the Z. Why are you surprised this happened?

20. PersianHobo

that's what happens when your carrier is on apple/samsung's sack T-mobie is all about change, it goes hand in hand

Good for tmobile folks. This news pretty much kills the rumored unlocked ATT/Tmob LTE compatible c6906 model. I'll have to go with the c6903 model that has partial ATT LTE support.

This makes T-Mobile even better. :)

I have the c6902 HSPA model. Sound is awesome through the headphones. Speaker is average - no match for HTC One.
