The Xperia ZL from Sony will be available from Cincinnati Bell online and in stores by May 1 for $249.99 after rebate with a two-year equipment agreement.
Sony has already put the unlocked Xperia ZL for sale in the US via their website, but now we see a contract version with Cincinnati Bell. The 5-inch Mobile Bravia Engine equipped phone will be available by May 1, and cost just $250 (after mail-in rebate) with a two-year agreement.
It;s the same Xperia ZL we see on the Sony store (though this version may be SIM locked) with the quad-core Snapdragon S4, 5-inch 1080p display, and 13MP Exmor RS rear camera that has everyone excited. It's also equipped with the same pentaband HSPA (bands 1,2,4,5 and 8) radio as the unlocked version, which means 3G 4G/HSPA+ service will work on just about every GSM carrier in the world. There's no word if LTE bands are still supported (1, 2, 4, 5 and 17) but we would be surprised if they were changed for this model.
The Xperia ZL looks like a real stunner, and we're happy that Cincinnati Bell customers have this one to choose from. The full press release is after the break.
