It is now official. Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone is now available in the United States. Sony is offering an unlocked edition of the device through its American online store for $529.99. A few days ago, the Xperia Z3 Compact made a quiet appearance in Sony Mobile's US website. This prompted many to speculate that the device will be coming to the US market in the next few weeks or months, perhaps by one of the four major carriers in America. Well, it's not there yet. But the fact that the Xperia Z3 Compact is made available at all is a step in the right direction for the Japanese phone maker, especially with regards to its Xperia line of mobile products. Just last week, Sony's larger Xperia Z3 handset was launched in the US via Verizon Wireless as the Xperia Z3v. Prior to that, another Xperia Z3 edition was also released by T-Mobile. And now, the Xperia Z3 Compact is making a splash of its own, even if it is not yet being offered by any US carrier. As seen in Sony's American online store, the Xperia Z3 Compact is being sold in black, white, green, and red colors. The white-colored version comes with both white front and back. As for the black, green and red versions, they all come with black-colored fronts (only the rear covers are colored black, green, or red, respectively).
The past few days have been busy for Sony. Just this week, the Japanese phone maker's Xperia Z3 smartphone was launched in the United States through Verizon as the Xperia Z3v. And before that, T-Mobile also launched its own Xperia Z3 edition. And now it appears that the smaller Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone will also be coming to the US market soon. Just recently, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact was sighted on Sony Mobile's US website. More specifically, the device has its own dedicated web page, which lists the smartphone's specifications and even features a few images of the Xperia Z3 Compact in four colors. The page even has a Buy Now button, but alas, clicking on it only leads to a landing page instead of a real e-store. The Xperia Z3 Compact's appearance in Sony Mobile's US website is no full guarantee of course that the device will be sold in the US. Still, fans of Sony's Xperia phones will no doubt be crossing their fingers, especially those eager to try the more handy Xperia Z3 Compact. As of this writing, no US carrier has officially made a statement yet that they will be pushing the Xperia Z3 Compact soon. But those who closely follow Sony smartphones need only remind themselves that in the past, the Japanese phone maker had previously offered a few unlocked handsets to American buyers. It is quite possible that the same could happen to the Xperia Z3 Compact.
