    The new Sony Xperia Z is running away with a ton of awards from CES. One of these awards was even the TechnoBuffalo "all around star" of CES. Here's a quote with more detailed info on many of the awards it received,

    It's not surprising that the new superphone from Sony is winning a large number of awards. It's impressive array of technology and enhancements really put it in a league of its own at CES and in the mobile world. Here's a recap of specs for the new flagship from Sony:
    • 5-inch Full HD 1080 x 1920 Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
    • 13MP fast capture camera with Exmor RS for mobile & HDR video
    • Dust & water resistant (IP55 & IP57)
    • 1.5 GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB
    • Battery STAMINA mode improves standby time by at least four times
    • One-touch mirroring
    • 4G LTE for superfast entertainment
    • Glass-back
    • Dust and Water Resistant
    • Slightly Larger Design Footprint
    • Slightly Thinner than the ZL at 7.9mm
    • 2,400mAh battery non-removable battery
    • A microSD Card slot
    What do you guys think? Would you be happy to see this phone come to your carrier? Is it finally time to start looking at Sony again?

    Maybe I'll look at it when it gets released in a store somewhere. Just not the biggest fan of Sony stuff.

    LOL^ Thanks for the redundancy catch. I am going to leave it as is, just so I can laugh at myself a bit longer, and you guys can too! ;)

    I don't even remember the last Sony phone on Verizon, at least any worth mentioning

    My Nexus doesn't feel old...yet...but once upgrade time rolls around it'll be 2yrs

    This is the second phone with the exmor RS sensor....the S means it has a stacked sensor. Im really curious to see what the picture quality is like! Sony makes some GREAT sensors.

    Good Screen size- check
    1080 hd beautiful- check
    quad core goodness- check
    SD slot- check
    Decent battery size (2400 lith-poly)- check! should last all day!
    What SHOULD be a great camera- check
    Dust and water resistant?.....sure! i'll take it!
    Dev friendly- check

    All my boxes are checked for a june purchase if it comes to verizon!

    Glass back......why?
