Verizon to Sell Sony's Xperia Z3v
Sony today announced that Verizon Wireless will sell the Xperia Z3 as the Xperia Z3v. Verizon said the two companies plan to work more together, not just with smartphones, but with other products. For example, Verizon already sells the Sony Z2 tablet. The Z3 smartphone, which Sony debuted last month, has a 5.2-inch full HD screen and is waterproof. It also features a 20.7-megapixel camera, compatibility with Sony PS4 Remote Play for gaming, and Sony's lifelogging service. The Verizon variant of the Z3 differs from the global model in that it features Qi-based wireless charging, while the global model does not. It also has minor exterior color variances. The Z3v will go on sale October 23 at most Verizon outlets. For a limited time, customers will receive a $200 discount if they purchase the Z3v handset and Z2 tablet together. Further, Verizon will sell the Sony Smart Watch 3 later this year. Pricing and exact availability of the Smart Watch 3 will be revealed later.
