Cincinnati Bell now offering the Sony Xperia Z1 for $300


sony xperia z1

The Sony Xperia Z1 is one hot mama of a device, but the problem for us Americans is that there’s a slim chance we’ll see it launch on the country’s top carriers. That means most folks will have to opt for an unlocked version, and even then those folks are confined to GSM carriers (often without the option of using 4G LTE).

Thankfully, that isn’t the case for one relatively small subset of American consumers. Regional carrier Cincinnati Bell has quietly made the Sony Xperia Z1 available for purchase. It’ll cost you $300 after signing a new two-year contract, and that will get you a 5-inch 1080p smartphone with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 20 megapixel camera and more.

Quad-band HSPA+ radios mean you’ll be able to enjoy speeds that aren’t quite as fast as LTE, but not quite as slow as regular HSPA 3G. Sold yet? Go ahead and order one from Cincy Bell’s website f you just have to have the phone at a discount.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  2. This is the one time I’d probably suggest fixing an error in the article.

    The last sentence, “Go ahead and order one from Cincy Bell’s website f you just have to have the phone at a discount”.
    “f you just…”
    “f you…”

    LoL!! I’m sorry. I just had to.
    But that seems like something that you’d want cleared up kinda fast. =.P
