    I saw some articles today saying Sony's US online store is now carrying the Xperia Z1, and after checking to be sure all the necessary bands are covered for T-Mobile I ordered a purple one. Looks like it ships tomorrow and I'm looking forward to checking it out when it gets here! It'll be replacing an HTC One if I end up keeping it.

    Anyone else ordering one for the US now that's officially available?

    Oh, and forgot to mention it was only $649, so a little cheaper than I thought it would be!

    Yeah that's a bit more expensive. Given current exchange rates 649 USD is about 675 CAD.

    I keep going back and forth on how much no LTE bothers me and come close to canceling and trying the G2 instead, but I love the look of the purple xperias (so tacky yet so different yet so interesting).

    According to my order e-mail it should ship tomorrow. If it does then I'll try it out, if not my urge to walk into a t-mo store and pick up a G2 instead to try out immediately may win out....

    We'll see.

    I actually ended up canceling my order anyways because I only realized this was an HSPA+ only phone, no LTE the next day after I'd ordered. At first I thought HSPA+ would be fine, but when I ran speed tests on my current phone I saw that LTE in my area is about twice as fast now as HSPA+ so I decided to hold off until T-Mobile officially carries the phone, and according to what I'm reading they'll have the LTE capable model.

    When I first ordered the e-mail I received had an estimated shipping date of 16-October! And, wow, she couldn't say anything better than 'before thanksgiving'?!?! By then the nexus 5 will be out, and who knows what else. Between releasing a non-LTE variant, and the long lead to shipping times in the Sony US store It seems they don't really care to have this sell well in the US.

    Update: Decided to try out the LG G2.....after a hesitant start I'm warming up to it really quickly and liking it very very much! To be forum-polite I'll switch over to that forum I suppose but if any of you are interested in details let me know....still getting to know it but enthusiastic thumbs up at the moment.

    I downloaded a GPS status app and it found 2 satellites almost instantly and had 6 satellites in about 3 seconds so that's an encouraging sign. Some of my previous phones would take much much longer, so at least initially it's looking very positive in that regard.

    I am on Tmobile and ordered the 6902. The lady didnt know when it would ship, but in the confirmation email it had an estimated ship date for the following date. I ended up returning it as its not LTE capable. Waste of money if you ask me. I ended purchasing the LTE version from Amazon.
