I wonder why none of the US carrier pick up Sony phone. It does seem like Sony was not very popular to US market and I think it's nice design.

I'm not going to doubt him at all. I have no information at all and I know nothing. But I am curious why they list it on there US mobile site as coming soon and it says LTE. Maybe they did that before the deal fell thru?

Yeah. That PlayStation cetified link doesn't say anything about LTE though unless I'm missing something. And the LTE bands listed on the us Sony site aren't ones that any US carrier uses that I can tell. I gotta believe Spectre on this, but hope something changes.

the radio's in c6606 (Z) should be similar to c6506 (ZL), just like the c6503 is similar to c6603. use gsm arena to check the frequencies.

GSMArena has errors on that stuff.

Nevermind, full of errors.

It basically comes down to the ZL sold in the US will work on AT&T LTE+3G and T-Mobile LTE+3G. The Xperia Z for the US only has 3G on AT&T and 3G on T-Mo. The Xperia Z for Europe only has 3G on AT&T, no LTE and no T-Mo either.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z LTE - SGP321, black
Sony Xperia Z1 - C6903, black, backup

The C6603 (which will be mostly sold in Europe with LTE) will work on AT&T's 3G but not on their LTE. The C6605 will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile's 3G but has no LTE. The C6505 (ZL) will work on AT&T and T-Mobile, both LTE and 3G.
Damn I was really hoping on getting the Z on AT&T with LTE. Guess I'm gonna have to pass on this Sony phone too :/

c6605 or c6505? the c6602 and c6502 are hspa+ only models, the c6606 and c6506 will be lte models compatible with att lte. and c6603 and c6503 are international lte phones.
