Sony has been noticeably coy when it comes to rumors of an Xperia Z variant landing in the U.S., refusing to name an exact carrier. However, there has been recent proof suggesting that rumors of T-Mobile being the Xperia Z’s U.S. carrier may turn out to be accurate.
Looking back at the events leading to this new report, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai had made the Xperia Z’s U.S. debut more or less official, stating at AllThingsD’s D11 conference that the waterproof flagship will soon be released by a U.S. mobile carrier. Wanting to keep things mysterious, Hirai didn’t provide any information on the exact carrier, nor did he provide any release date, or even a tentative release window. Despite Hirai playing his cards close to his chest, rumors of a T-Mobile Xperia Z continued raging on, as the reinvented “UNcarrier” is widely expected to be the carrier in question.Read more
