After becoming officially available for purchase only 2 days ago, it seems Sony has finally gotten their house in order and are ready to give ship dates for the unlocked Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. According to the Sony Store, if you pre-order the unlocked Z3 Compact today — which supports both AT&T and T-Mobile networks (no band 12 LTE, however) — you can expect the phone to arrive on your doorstep as early as November 3rd.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is retailing for $530 direct from Sony and offers the highest-end hardware specs you can find on a sub-5-inch smartphone. Sony also offers 2 years of accidental damage protection for an additional $80 in the event the phone is ever dropped and damaged ($0 deductible).
Don’t forget, student and faculty also get a bonus 10% (about $53) off the price of a new Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (or any Sony device for that matter) just by signing up at Sony’s Student Store here. Not a student or faculty? You can still sign up and nab the discount if you’re “buying for a student,” so there’s always that route as well.
P.S. Yes, I just purchased one for myself in black. Can’t wait to finally get my hands on a full capable Android device I don’t have to use with 2 hands.
