T-Mobile confirms Sony Xperia Z rumors


Remember last week how T-Mobile was teasing a waterproof smartphone? It posted a video last Wednesday showing such a handset in action (though without revealing the actual phone itself) and promised to have more news about this hardware to follow on Thursday. Except, that didn’t happen on Thursday, nor Friday, and we even managed to go all weekend without news about this mystery waterproof phone arriving. OK, sure we were expecting it to be the Sony Xperia Z (especially after AT&T confirmed the Galaxy S 4 Active as an exclusive), but why wasn’t T-Mobile following up on its tease? Well, whatever reason the carrier had for its delay, it’s finally ready to go public now, and has announced its plans for the Xperia Z.

The phone itself is nothing new by now (and you can check out our review for the full story on its performance), but what about those T-Mobile launch details? Sadly, even after all this waiting, we still don’t have a complete picture. All T-Mobile is willing to say is that it’s going to be the exclusive US carrier for the Xperia Z and that sales of the phone will start “in the coming weeks.” It will offer the phone both in black and purple finishes, and if you’re seriously itching for updates on its arrival, T-Mobile’s got a sign-up page you can register with.

Is anybody still looking forward to this guy, or did the GS4 Active sort of kill the allure?
