Question [Q] will Ebay tablets work inUSA?

I am seeing z2s on ebay and amazon from the UK and Hong Kong. Are they genuine? Will they work in the US in regards to power and ROMs and such? No US speced model listed on Sony site as of yet so im cautious to by one intended for another market. What would need to be done to use it in the US?

From what I have read Sony has, wifi only and wifi+LTE model.

From the research I did the wifi+lte model has pretty much every band in it. So it will work in the US on Att and T-mobile.

I received a reply from one of the UK vendors and he said that the charger is 3 prong style not 2 prong and woulld need an adapter. I am assuming the actual tablet electronics would be the same though. Can anybody confirm? Also, is there any reason you could not recieve US updates if is has a UK rom or is it the same thiing. Just worried because my TF201 tablet had different ROMs for each world wide market.

The charger plug is an issue, although minor in my opinion. Bigger issue is warranty.
