Apr 1st, 2014


The Sony Xperia Z2 is one of the upcoming smartphones we have our eye on for 2014. In fact, our biggest problem with the smartphone is that we can’t get our hands on it. Like, now.  When Sony unveiled the Xperia X2 during this year’s Mobile World Congress 2014, curiously, US availability was left out of the press release. Now, after rumors of high demand/short supply, we’re wondering if we’ll ever see this phone launch stateside anytime soon.

Well, Sony is finally announcing that the phone will, in fact, be available in North America, arriving this May exclusively for Bell in Canada. Yeah. What the eff. Our sentiments exactly. While we’re happy for our friends up north, or even in Europe who will get the chance to buy the phone as early as this month (in short supply), we’re hoping Sony ramps up production and doesn’t leave the US waiting too long.

Now comes the tough part in guessing which of the 4 major US carriers will pick this up? We know Sony has a history with T-Mobile, but the phone already supports most of AT&T’s bands, but maybe Sprint or Verizon will see the value this device offers their line up and swoop in for the exclusive. Thoughts?
