The Xperia Z3 had a short lived life in the United States. The device first launched on T-Mobile back in October, and the carrier has already decided that it’s going to stop selling Sony’s latest flagship smartphone.
One customer pinged T-Mobile on Twitter and asked why he wasn’t able to find the Xperia Z3 on T-Mobile’s site anywhere. The carrier responded and said “The Z3 is no longer available,” and provided a list of current Sony products offered. It’s possible the Xperia Z3 wasn’t selling well and that T-Mobile decided it was better off stocking more popular devices, such as the incoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Most U.S. carriers decided not to carry the Xperia Z3 when it launched in the U.S. T-Mobile was the only one to pick up the original model, while Verizon sold a watered down version that was more akin to the Xperia Z2 from last year. Sony’s Xperia Z4 is apparently just over the horizon, so maybe that will fare better.
