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, 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...

How is the volume level of the headphones? I stream Google Music through my car via a 3.5 mm headphone cable and the Nexus 4 volume levels are not that good. I Googled a fix or workaround for it this morning but will probably just wait for the Z1 instead (most fixes required root).

Volume levels seem pretty loud. I stream through car bluetooth though and I never had to go past the medium volume level. But don't take my word for granted before trying it out yourself (hobby musician, ears are very sharp, skills are not - lol use only medium volume levels). . Will try out 3.5 mm cable if I happen to find it soon.

Definitely true news, I spoke with a sony rep that said the phone should be coming to T-mobile. Unfortunate news is that it probably wont hit tmobile till january ish.

1. so customers with the z can jump to z1
2. since the focus is on japan and europe at the moment

all adds up and definitely good news nonetheless. I'm definitely swapping out my Z for the Z1

Considering the fact that Xperia Z was on T-mobile, it's a no surprise Z1 is coming to Tmo also.

For me it was G2 Vs. Nexus 5 vs. Xperia Z1
Now it's down to Nexus 5 vs. Z1 for my next device...

It is not a T-Mobile exclusive, non of the other carriers think Sony's phones are good enough except T-Mobile because they are the only carrier thats not run by a bunch of greedy old men.
