The Xperia Z was introduced by Sony earlier this Spring, and it was one of the first high-end handsets on the market to be water and dust-resistant. Sony’s Xperia Z is the reason why Samsung unveiled its own waterproof phone today, known as the Galaxy S4 Active, and why LG now has its own waterproof smartphone known as the LG Optimus GJ. Sony has indeed started a revolution in the smartphone and tablet markets.
Sony’s waterproof king was released unlocked in the US some time ago (at around $629), but the waterproof handset is finally headed to T-Mobile stores. According to T-Mobile’s own support pages, T-Mobile has published material related to viewing images of the Xperia Z, replacing the battery and conserving battery life, updating the software on the Xperia Z, backing up and restoring your phone settings, as well as inserting a SIM card for the phone and learning how to unlock the handset.
There are instructions on how to change and customize screen and camera settings for the Xperia Z. For those who want to read the introductory guide to the phone, T-Mobile has even provided a “Getting Started Guide” to the Xperia Z.
This material that has been published at the above site shows that the Xperia Z is soon headed to T-Mobile and will become available quickly. While we don’t have a specific date, you can rest assured that there will be a follow-up to this post when the phone becomes available.
The Xperia Z is not only water and dust-resistant, but also comes with a five-inch display, 1920 x 1080p screen resolution, 1080p video recording, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and comes preloaded with Android 4.2.2. The phone will cost somewhere around $579.99 with a T-Mobile value or prepaid plan.
