Well, it was way back in February when Sony unveiled its Xperia Z2 for the world at the Mobile World Congress event held in Barcelona. After the unveiling ceremony, Sony announced that by the end of the March, Xperia Z2 will be trotting around the Globe. But we’ve reached the end of April and the device is yet to hit the U.S. markets. The news is that Xperia Z2 will be arriving in the states precisely this summer, after July 2014.
According to the latest news came from Tech Crunch, the phablet is coming through, Sony has officially confirmed that Xperia Z2 will be launched in US this summer. No release dates were provided by the company. Right at this point of time, there are no guaranteed words about which carrier will be accompanying the device.
According to the present plans, Sony will be showcasing Unlocked Xperia Z2 smartphones in Store.Sony.Com online store. The company is in talks with major U.S. carriers to bring the handsets under their brands and nothing had been finalized yet.
According to the experts, Sony is not is a great position with its past experiences in the United States. The company is not a big name and neither has had great success with smartphones in recent times. T-Mobile is the only U.S. Carrier to have worked with Sony with Xperia Z1S. Probably as a result of all these, Sony is going in with unlocked phones. But the disadvantages that might strike hard are ‘No presence in carrier stores’ and ‘maximum retail price’. It will be interesting to see how Sony tackles the issues.
Sony Xperia Z2 is now available in select Asian markets since March 2014, while Canada is set to get the large-screen powerhouse in May. For your information: Sony and Vodafone UK gave away a free 32-inch Sony Bravia LED TV for the first 3,000 consumers, who pre-ordered the smartphone. But as usual, United States resides in bottom of Sony’s list of priority smartphone markets.
