    Here's a lightning bolt from the heavens for Sony fans on Verizon. Big Red will be getting the Sony Xperia Z3v on October 23rd. The device will sell for $199.99 on a new two year VZW contract. To be clear, this is the actual Xperia Z3. The unusual moniker is simply Verizon personalizing the name to their liking. This includes all of the bells and whistles you would expect from Sony's flagship, including a 5.2-inch display, waterproofing, aluminum-frame, glass-backed chassis, and the same internals the device is known for.

    There's even more to this announcement. Sony and Verizon are offering a bundle deal on the Xperia Z3 smartphone and the Xperia Z2 Android tablet. On top of this Verizon will also have several Sony accessories you can pick up.

    Here's our Sony section for more discussions on the Xperia Z3: Sony Smartphone General Discussion Android Forums at DroidForums.net

    Here's the full press release below with the details,

    It is actually different from the T Mobile model: it's thicker because it supports Wireless Charging. The TMobile version does not.

    If the Droid turbo didn't blow it out of the water(my opinion, except this is water proof) I'd be getting one.

    Very good to see VZW moving quickly on this one and getting it out to customers sooner rather than later :)...

    I have to respectfully disagree with ya there jake. Unlike the old days, (even with last year's models) the latest flagships run super smooth even with carrier & manufacturer bloat.

    Agreed. My current LG G3 is smooth as can be. Aslo. according to some reviews, the Xperia Z3's ui is the smoothest out of all the OEM ui's. Looking forward to this phone!

    FINALLY a phone I really want on Verizon. Well I want the Moto X too, but been dying to have an Xperia device.

    I don't like how they've changed the looks so much, the difference is significant, but it's still a great looking device.

    Still waiting on the z3 compact, or a variant of it. I don't have an upgrade or really the right funds to get it off contract right now, so now the waiting game. I'm just happy an Xperia device is available on Verizon. About time.
